A selection of Altman family home movies will be shown prior to the movie screening, along with insightful commentary by an Altman family member. And, as a special treat, a surprise guest cast member and moderator will take to the Alex Theatre stage for a live Q&A before the screening. Learn More

Great movie event! Always loved this movie, and to see it again on the big screen was truly special. The event was staged wonderfully, with a barber shop quarter that took requests. NOSTALGIA!!
The classic adaptation of Meridith Willson’s Broadway smash hit. Robert Preston repeats his signature role as the musical con man, Professor Harold Hill, selling a bill of goods to the salt of the earth townspeople of River City, Iowa. In the process, he woos Marion Paroo (Shirley Jones), the town librarian and the only person in River City to realize the scam. With Paul Ford, Hermione Gingold, Pert Kelton, Buddy Hackett and a very tiny, sibilant-spouting Ronny Howard. With now classic songs like, “Seventy-Six Trombones”, “Gary Indiana” “Lida Rose” and “Till There Was You”, The Music Man is wide screen, Oscar- winning turn-of-the-century fun!
Also screening will be the classic CinemaScope cartoon “Meet Mother Magoo” (UPA 1956) starring Mr. Magoo.
Performing at 8 pm in the forecourt will be the fantastic barbershop quartet: “The Perfect Gentlemen”
At both shows a display of props and memorabilia including an original band uniform and trombone will be on display.
