Celebrate the grittiness and style of film noir at a beautiful 1925 movie palace -- the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale -- with a double dose of films featuring car chases and gun-toting dames aplenty. In Gun Crazy, a man becomes obsessed with a sharpshooting femme fatale, leading them both down a dark road of armed robbery, car theft and murder. This essential film noir was filmed on location in Los Angeles, including a bank robbery scene shot in nearby Montrose. The Lineup, set in 1958 San Francisco, stars Eli Wallach as the maniacal leader of a gang in mad pursuit of a group of innocent tourists who've had heroin stashed in their luggage. The Lineup was directed by Don Siegel, who would go on to direct such high-profile films as Dirty Harry. Learn More
Follow an expedition to the Southwest in the 1840s. Courtesy of the Autry National Center, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra family concert intersperses Copland’s famous score with stories inspired by the experiences of Catherine McDonald, the young Native American daughter of a fur trader. You’ll recognize the tune of the American folk song, Simple Gifts.
