Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

The Alex has such wonderful programs and this was one of them. How can the movie be bad with this cast, although we forgot that it was over 2 hours with the Daffy Duck cartoon. The evening was a delight.

The Alex is a wonderful theater in which to see one of Hollywood's classic films. The Chuck Jones cartoon was a real treat, too. Kudos to everyone!

The Alex Theater is beautiful and if you love movies you should try to see a movie at this location. Oklahoma was a bit dated and too long for my taste but there was some fun parts that I really enjoyed.

Description

Filled with timeless, showstopping songs, this Oscar-winning Rodgers and Hammerstein landmark musical takes you back to Oklahoma at the turn of the last century.  It’s the story of a couple of young cowboys trying to win the hearts of their sweethearts, despite the interference of an evil ranch hand.

When first released, it was described as “A motion picture as big as all outdoors!” And it still is.

The film stars Gordon MacRae, Shirley Jones, Rod Steiger, Gloria Graham and Eddie Albert and contains unforgettable ballet sequence and choreography by Agnes de Mille and direction by Fred Zinnemann.

Also on the program will be the delightful Warner Bros. Merrie Melody: _Drip-Along Daffy _from 1951 featuring Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Nasty Canasta.
