Conservancy volunteers and one staff member launched Last Remaining Seats in 1987 to bring attention to the historic theatres of Broadway. The venues were spectacular yet had seen better days; many ran low-budget or X-rated films. In the early days of the series, volunteers worked diligently to make the spaces presentable by scrubbing walls and bathrooms, covering arcade games to draw attention to the architecture, and bringing flowers and incense to mask unpleasant odors. Today, several of these same theatres have been beautifully restored, and the series has become a summer tradition.
