Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More

Such a great film!
The sun is swimmin' on the rim of a hill;
The moon is takin' a header,
And jist as I'm thinkin' all the earth is still,
A lark'll wake up in the medder.
Hush, you bird, my baby's a-sleepin'!
Maybe got a dream worth a-keepin'
Whoa! you team, and jist keep a-creepin' at a slow clip clop.
Don't you hurry with the surrey with the fringe on the top!
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.
