It’s the L.A. Conservancy’s 25th season of cracking open downtown’s grand old movie palaces to present packed audiences with classics like King Kong and The Music Man the way they were intended to be seen: on huge screens and in appropriately plush surroundings. Rediscover bygone treasures at the Orpheum (serving cocktails, bless them), Los Angeles, Palace, and Million Dollar, which is where Zoot Suit is showing. Based on the musical by Luis Valdez, the 1981 film launched the careers of Edward James Olmos and many others, offering a long-overdue accounting of Anglo Los Angeles and its silenced Latino population. The 30th-anniversary screening will be accompanied by a panel discussion organized by copresenter Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles. Valdez will also talk about the film, for which Universal Pictures gave him $1.2 million—and 13 days to shoot. More information.
