Legendary filmmaker Robert Altman directs an all-star ensemble cast -- including Lily Tomlin, Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan, Kevin Kline, Tommy Lee Jones and Woody Harrelson -- in this acclaimed cinematic adaptation of one of public radio's most beloved and longest running hit shows, Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. A selection of Altman family home movies will be shown prior to the movie screening, along with insightful commentary by an Altman family member. And, as a special treat, a surprise guest cast member and moderator will take to the Alex Theatre stage for a live Q&A before the screening. Learn More

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.
The day after Christmas has always been a big day for releasing movies, as many families are looking for something to do after all the presents have been opened and all the parties are over. This year, on December 26th, the Alex Film Society will be presenting our 2nd Annual, family oriented special event that provides a really great alternative to the other pre-packaged Hollywood extravaganzas.
The Greatest Cartoons Ever! showcases some of the very best theatrical cartoons from the movies’ Golden Age, featuring iconic characters like Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny and more, projected in 35mm on the big screen at the Alex Theatre.
