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

Fun to see "Goonies" on the big screen. We took our 7 year old and he said it was good. The Alex Theater is a wonderfully restored venue-- originally opened in 1925! Very friendly staff, comfortable seats and very clean, well maintained venue.

So awesome to see The Goonies on the big screen! And the theatre is beautiful. I wasn't aware that there would be a guest speaker (the prop-master from the film), but his 10-minute interview before the film added a lot to our enjoyment. And we...continued
The Goonies is a grand adventure film, and a blueprint for how to make an all-ages film that holds up over time.
Mikey and Brandon Walsh are two brothers whose family is preparing to move due to a new development that is sure to be started unless enough money is raised, which is quite doubtful.
But, when Mikey stumbles on a treasure map of the famed “One-Eyed” Willy’s hidden fortune, he, his brother, and a few friends set out on a quest to find the riches in hopes to save their homes.
The entrance to a cavern is found, but it is located underneath an abandoned restaurant occupied by the Fratelli family, a treacherous group of thieves who attempt to beat the “Goonies” to the treasure.
The Goonies stars Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, and Joe Pantoliano. Written by Chris Columbus and directed by Richard Donner.
Event running time is approximately 2 hours.
