LACMA Film Program Saved

lacma logo.jpgThe Los Angeles County Museum of Art will no longer be shutting down it’s weekend film series program this fall, thanks to some generous corporate donations. From the Hollywood Reporter:

The program will continue to operate until at least June thanks to a grant of $150,000 from the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. and Time Warner Cable in a partnership with Ovation TV.

LACMA said last month that it was closing the weekend film program, a staple at the museum during the past four decades, because it had lost $1 million during the past 10 years. It also said Ian Birnie, the program’s director for 13 years, would become a consultant.

The decision provoked an outcry in Los Angeles’ film community.
