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

This was a lot like college football, vs. pro ball, for me. More exciting, more little things that almost went wrong, and you could see the work these people had put into the production more. Not as polished as some Nutcrackers I have seen, but so much heart! This was an unexpected delight. Thank you.
There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to share the magic of Clara and her Nutcracker! Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center’s production of The Nutcracker is a delightful, family-friendly version of the traditional holiday ballet.
This year’s production comes complete with all-new choreography, and guest artists April McLeod and Sven Toorvald as the Sugarplum Fairy and her Cavalier, Patrick Loyd as the Nutcracker Prince, Ben Gleichauf as the Mouse King, and Jerry Kokich as Drosselmeyer. Other featured performers are members of the Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center Ballet Companies, with students from the Performing Arts Center filling out the ensemble.
