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

Alex Theatre is charming, there is ample parking for $1 with validation (thanks to City of Glendale), many great restaurants and stores nearby, so I recommend this venue. The symphony itself is very good with a new young Asian woman leading, so I will plan on attending another of their concerts in December.

Southern California does have seasons, contrary to what folks in other sections of the country may think. In fact, this evening’s performance will guarantee an experience of all four seasons …when the Glendale Symphony Orchestra travels back in time 300 years to Italy, to enjoy Antonio Vivaldi’s best known and most beloved work, ‘The Four Seasons.’
From Italy, then travel to Argentina to experience the four seasons yet again – albeit with a distinctly South American flavor – when the orchestra presents ‘Cuatro Estaciones en Buenos Aires,’ a seething, seductive masterpiece by renowned 20th century tango composer, Astor Piazzola.
And, because it’s impossible to stop dancing once you start to tango, the night will conclude with ‘Three Tangos for Flute and String Orchestra,’ composed by the Glendale Symphony Orchestra’s very own former Music Director, Lalo Schifrin.
