The LA Times is reporting that the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. and Time Warner Cable in association with Ovation TV have ponied up a total of $150,000 to LACMA’s film program, resulting in a declaration that the museum’s once endangered weekend screening series has been saved.
For the record, $150,000 is 15% of museum director Michael Govan’s salary. Apparently, that’s all it took. The battle to save the screening series may be over, but there’s still a money management war to win.
Until then, I’ll save you a seat at the Bing.
