Last Remaining Seats Planning Committee (LRSCOM)

Interested in helping plan Last Remaining Seats?

2020 marked the 34th season of Last Remaining Seats, our signature series of classic films in historic theatres. However, due the COVID-19 pandemic, the Conservancy found it necessary to cancel the 2020 as well as the 2021 series. However, the LRS Committee remains active, and is investing its time in film research so that when the series gets the green light, we'll be most prepared to present a slate of winning films. So, as always, our devoted core of longtime committee members welcomes fresh faces to lend their creativity, enthusiasm, and elbow grease!

The LRS Committee is an annual group of volunteers who help Conservancy staff primarily in:

  • Selecting, via a voting process, films appropriate for the series
  • Creating and implementing the pre/post-film programming, events, and displays

You don’t need to be a film or theatre expert to serve on the LRS Committee but a passion for films and a creative mind are assets! Once the film line-up has been confirmed, you will be asked to serve on one of the various sub-committees of your choice (audience participation, selfie stations props and displays, community outreach, etc. ) and assist with at least one of the screenings.

Planning for the 2021 series (which may also be cancelled due to COVID-19 requirements) began in early 2021, and progresses with the meeting dates noted below. Meeting attendance is not mandatory but to be a voting member of the committee you need to be a member of the Conservancy and attend three or more LRS committee meetings within a 12-month period. 

 LRS Committee Meeting Schedule for 2021:

Committee virtual meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month. The next LRS Committee Meeting will be on Tuesday, July 13 at 7:00 pm.  Meetings are conducted via Zoom and committee members are sent the link prior to the meeting date.  

Please let Bruce Scottow know if you are not an LRS committee member but would like to attend a meeting. You may reach him at Also let Bruce know if you have any questions about what joining this active committee entails.

Thank you,
