I love both going to movie theatres and live shows so if you can combine the two, I’m usually in.
Tonight at Cinefamily it’s a win-win in their “band and a movie” feature. The band is No-Cal indie folk artist Cass McCombs. The movie he’s chosen to showcase is the 1971 drug addled film Dusty and Sweets McGee. Cass will follow up the movie with a live performance.
Saturday, Jewel performs of a jewel of a theatre in Downtown LA. The Palace Theatre opened in 1911 as the third home of the Orpheum vaudeville circuit in Los Angeles. It is one of the oldest theatres in Los Angeles and the oldest remaining original Orpheum theatre in the U.S. While the structure’s exterior displays Italian influences, its interior decoration is distinctly French, with garland-draped columns and a color scheme of pale pastels. The auditorium was designed with excellent acoustics for a pre-amplified age. Stunning and hard to believe this is a hardly seen venue in LA.
