Great selection to be shown on the big screen. The guest, 95 year old makeup artist Karl Silvera, who actually worked on the film, was utterly charming. I could have listened to him all night.

The restored Alex Theater in downtown Glendale is a very comfortable venue. This event featured an interview with the make-up artist for the movie (age 95), and added alot to the enjoyment of the movie.

it was great to see the movie on screen at an old vaudeville theatre. such a wonderful performance. The Alex Theatre Film Society really outdid themselves by having the makeup artist from the actual film there...can you say movie legend?!!!!

We had never seen Sunset Boulevard on the big screen. Without TV editing and interruptions for commercials, the story and performances were powerful. The film should've won the Best Picture Oscar.

Only in LA– the opportunity to see one of the best written, directed, acted and filmed movies at a grand old theater. An original cast member introduced the (97 year old!) make up artist, his mentor, prior to the showing. The next day, I passed...continued

A great movie at a gorgeous location! Having a brief Q & A with the currently 95-year old make-up artist for the film was a heart-warming touch.

The Alex Theatre was amazing, so beautiful and elegant. We had a wonderful time and the Glendale area is so fun, we came from Long Beach. There were two guest speakers before the movie started which was interesting but make the evening a bit too...continued
