Here’s the story:
For all you control freaks out there (and the cost of admission), LACMA has enabled you to control the weather!
Recycled water falls from the sky around sensors that start and stop it based on where you are, leaving a rainless cone of dryness around you wherever you walk. The floors are grated for the water to fall through and get recycled back up to the ceiling (ladies, watch the heels). Even the opening night, because only a certain can fit in the Rain Room at once, there was a line through the lobby level of BCAM… around the maze from LACMA’s permanent collection, the DJ, two bars and beyond … However, for *VVIPs, Instagramers, sneaky ones, and people with amazing blogs, we we’re walked through a back entrance and given two minutes in the center of the Rain Room to get our “Flashdance” shots in!
