Definitely a big fuss when this was announced. I haven’t seen any films here, which is sad as that oppprtunity may soon be gone. There always seems ti be a parking problem around the museum area.

Thank you all for the links. The good news certainly didn’t travel as fast as the bad, that’s for sure. But what a relief. For now.

Operating at LACMA since May of 1965 at least.

As the Bing Theatre was part of the original LACMA complex, it would be the work of the original architect, William Pereira.
