This area of Glendale can get crowded so arrive a little early to find parking behind the theatre or on the next block.

I wore light jacket or wrap if you are sitting in the balcony as the air conditioning can get cold..

It says something when these classic cartoons from the 1930s-50s have more intelligent things to say than many of today's Hollywood movies. Visiting the Alex Theatre is always a visual treat and the audience is reliably enthusiastic.

This was an enjoyable event. I love The Alex Theatre. Great selection of the vintage cartoons that I grew up with. I will make it a point to return to 3rd annual screening. Thanks Goldstar!
