The Committee

The Last Remaining Seats volunteer planning  committee helps plan our annual classic film series in historic theatres and supports the Conservancy primarily with the following:

  • Selecting films appropriate for the series via a voting process
  • Creating and implementing the pre/post-film programming, events, and displays
  • Assisting with concessions and day-of programming needs

Once the film line-up has been confirmed, volunteers must serve on one of the various sub-committees of their choice (audience engagement, selfie stations, props and displays, community outreach, etc. ) and assist with at least one of the screenings.

Meeting attendance is not mandatory, but to be a voting member of the committee, volunteers need to be a member of the Conservancy and attend three or more LRS committee meetings within 12 months.

The committee is active from September to June. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month and are primarily help virtually.
