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

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is one of the finest and most impressive arts organizations in Los Angeles. Jeffrey Kahane, the conductor, is a brilliant and inspiring pianist. His traversal of the Mozart piano concerti in the anniversary year is rich, elegant, heartfelt, and deeply merry--full of joy.
Quotes & Highlights
“Indeed, one might wonder whether Mozart, a celebrated pianist, really played with much greater conviction, brilliance, individuality or finesse than Kahane brought to the magnificent 25th Concerto.” -–Detroit News

Piano Concerto No. 16 in D major
Piano Concerto No. 18 in B-flat major
Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major
The 1784 concertos, written when Mozart was the toast of Vienna, were both published successfully during his lifetime, No. 16 in 1785, and No. 18 in 1787.
Piano Concerto No. 25 (1786) was only published after Mozart’s death when his widow pursued this “risky venture” herself. As she feared, Constanze was forced to sell the engraved plates of her 1797 edition to recoup her losses.
