The Million Dollar Theater is a great place to see this movie. Built in 1918 it was a jewel of early Los Angeles. http://www.milliondollartheater.com/Entrance.html In the forties and fifties when my (Mexican American) mom was a kid it was home to Mexican movies and Mexican vaudeville. My grandpa would sometimes take her out of school to go see it! Later the theater was used for religious revivals. Now it has been restored to its original glory. Bring your camera. There will be time to walk around before the movie and take pictures. There may even be musical performers and a guest speaker. It will be an event!

Thanks to Last Remaining Seats - Part of the Los Angeles Conservancy we will get to see this movie in this truly historic location!!! Hurry up and buy your ticket as the other movies have all sold out!

The movie is at 8:00 - I will be in line at 6:00 - If memory serves, the doors open at 7:00 - First come first to grab seats!!!! (Just to let you know the movie is at 8:00, Mexican time! There may be speakers and performers first!)
