Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

My friend and I had a great time. It was fun to do something totally different and unexpected. Meeting the star of the film and the live magic act were nice bonuses!

The Alex film society organizes great events. The pre-show entertainment was fun and the film itself was fabulous. Wonderful to see this one on the big screen again.
