The Los Angeles Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats film series, now in its 27th year, always presents a silent film with live accompaniment, and this year’s pick is 1925’s “Ben-Hur.” It's screening at one of LA’s most beautiful cinemas, the glorious, impeccably restored Orpheum Theatre in Downtown’s old Broadway Theater District. Built in 1926 for vaudeville performances, the Orpheum features Paris Opera-inspired interiors, majestic crystal chandeliers, and a Mightly Wurlitzer organ. "Ben-Hur," an epic featuring amazing chariot race and sea battle sequences, starred Ramon Navarro and was the most lavish of all of MGM’s silent pictures. The evening’s host is Hollywood historian Mark Viera, an accomplished Hollywood historian who wrote “Sin in Soft Focus: Pre-Code Hollywood” and is co-author of “Harlow in Hollywood.”
