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

Given that the works were by 4 vastly different choreographers, the quality was uneven. In most cases, though, the dancers were pretty terrific. My feeling is that the weak point is the theatre itself -- sound was bad, spoken words unintelligible and there was no air conditioning to speak of and no air circulation in the mezz.

About the Ticket Supplier: Los Angeles Ballet
The debut of Los Angeles Ballet on December 2, 2006, was met with standing ovations and critical acclaim. “A Company is Born”, declared LA Times dance critic Lewis Segal in his December 4, 2006 review. “… there’s plenty of promise in the homegrown production by company artistic directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary.”
Los Angeles Ballet’s original production of The Nutcracker reflects the city in which it is based. It introduced the first of many seasons of ballet made fresh, alluring, and entertaining. With choreography by Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary and set design by LA designer and illustrator Catherine Kanner, the production is the first to honor the company’s mission to establish an artistic collaboration that invites all genres to participate. Choreographers, composers, dancers, musicians, and set, costume and lighting designers, come together in Los Angeles Ballet for a new era of performing arts innovation.
World-class dance has come home to Los Angeles.
