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

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.
