Although it won a reprieve from budget cuts last year and is safe for one more fiscal year, the film program at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art still faces fundraising challenges and possible extinction.
Details are in today's Los Angeles Times.
The Museum has a fabulous lineup of Ernst Lubitsch films scheduled this summer. It's a wonderful opportunity for Southern Californians to see classics on the big screen, including TROUBLE IN PARADISE (1932), THE SMILING LIEUTENANT (1931), THE MERRY WIDOW (1934), BLUEBEARD'S EIGHTH WIFE (1938), TO BE OR NOT TO BE (1942), HEAVEN CAN WAIT (1943), CLUNY BROWN (1946), and more.
We had a great time at the Museum last fall seeing a double bill of Audrey Hepburn movies, and I hope to return again soon.
