Loved the well maintained Retro theatre. The lobby walls display posters and pictures from chic days gone by. Seats were comfortable, there really wasn't a bad seat for viewing the production. We thoroughly enjoyed the CS Leis play "The Great Divorce"

This is a classic theater that was converted from a movie house that had been closed for years into a major concert and professional live theater. I worked there as an usher captain for over 5 years. Great venue that did all kinds of shows. Beautifully remodeled when it was reopened about 30 years ago. Several major groups use this... More

4.20.2013 - saw the LA Chamber Orchestra performing Handel & Mozart concertos. Jeffrey Kahane conducted and performed on the piano. We had balcony seats. The sound quality was decent. The seatings, fussy 1920s decor and garish lighting really needs modern upgrades. Their last redevelopment was in 1992. I noticed most of their patrons are older. Old people die eventually. You...

I go to the Alex Theatre with a friend who has a membership; we go for the older movies. Seeing Dr. Strangelove tonight. It's a great, old theater, and I enjoy watching older movies there.

The theatre offers a diverse selections of shows. I have enjoyed seeing the LA ballet perform there, and dance recitals. The ambiance is lovely in the heart of Glendale. Tickets are not very expensive and parking one block away. It is a nice venue that I like to visit whenever I find a dance recital showing there.

Our dance group had a tour of the Alex which included a history of the theater and visits to areas behind and under the auditorium. The tour leader was very good at describing the efforts to save and renovate this important Glendale landmark.

We went to the Alex Theatre to see my nephew perform in the orcehstra for the David Arkenstone's Symphonic Adventure on March 16th. I loved the feel of the theatre. It was nice, clean and beautifully decorated. It is a small venue, but we didn't feel cramped. We had seats about 15 rows up from the stage, and could see... More

We frequent the theater because we enjoy the shows they put on. I have never been disappointed in one of their performances.
