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

Music by Cy Coleman
Lyrics by Dorothy Fields
Written by Michael Bennett
Based on the play Two for the Seesaw by William Gibson
Adapted from William Gibson’s play Two for the Seesaw to the musical stage by Cy Coleman (score), Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and Michael Bennett (book), Seesaw received seven Tony® Award nominations (winning for Tommy Tune’s performance and Bennett’s choreography) and ran for a total of 296 performances. Seesaw was a show of firsts and lasts: launching the career of Tommy Tune and highlighting the ﬁnal lyrics of the great Dorothy Fields. Featuring pulsating Cy Coleman melodies (“It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish”) and with 1970 era New York as the background, Seesaw tells the tale of a slightly square, not–quite single lawyer from the Midwest and an off-kilter would-be-dancer from the Bronx.
Seesaw will star Eydie Alyson as Gittel, Roger Befeler as Jerry and Steven Hack as David. The ensemble will feature MTG members Danny Bolero, Ron Christopher Jones and Melissa Lyons with guest artists Kari Lee Cartwright, Robyn Cohen, Lindsay MacDonald, Lowe Taylor and Jake Wesley Stewart. Seesaw will be directed and choreographed by Todd Nielsen with musical direction by Dean Mora and is produced for MTG by Eileen Barnett and Pamela Hamill.
