The 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.
