The Los Angeles Conservancy's Last Remaining Seats series, which presents classic films in historic theaters, continues with the 1922 adaptation of Robin Hood, starring Douglas Fairbanks in the title role.
The LAC website describes the film:
Douglas Fairbanks shines in the original superhero movie, one of the most enduring of the more than forty cinematic adaptations of the popular Robin Hood legend. In addition to being one of the most expensive movies of the 1920s (with a budget of over a million dollars), Robin Hood was the first film to have a Hollywood premier (at the Egyptian Theatre).Leonard Maltin will introduce the screening; Robert Israel will provide live organ accompaniment; a special costume display from The Artist (which has ties to both Fairbanks and the Orpheum) will be on display; and Jeffrey Vance, author of Douglas Fairbanks, will participate in a book signing after the show.
The series concludes Saturday, June 30, at the Saban Theatre.
