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!!!!

I loved movie "The Time Machine" when I first saw it in 1960. I'm no longer 8 years old, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this presentation of it at the grand old Alex Theatre on Saturday afternoon.

I did enjoy the movie The Time Machine at the Alex Theatre. I have never seen this movie before.
It was an entertaining and very imaginative movie.

The Time Machine is a classic movie. It was very good. I love the Alex Theatre in Glendale where it was shown. I had a great time!

Description

Producer/Director George Pal scored a major hit with his 1953 version of H. G. Wells science fiction novel WAR OF THE WORLDS. Pal teamed with the best selling British author again in 1960 for the enormously popular M-G-M production of The Time Machine.

Rugged Australian actor Rod Taylor became a major star as the time traveler and Yvette Mimieux established herself as a 60’s icon with her portrayal of the golden haired Weena.

The production won an Academy Award® for its Special Effects and stop action animation sequences. M-G-M’s veteran Makeup Artist William Tuttle and Pal himself created the look of the hideous, subterranean Morlocks who prey on the defenseless Eloi.

Hosting both screenings will be science fiction writer and filmmaker Paul Davids (The Sci Fi Boys) who will screen Famous Monsters of Filmland creator Forrest Ackerman’s eulogy for George Pal.

The program concludes on the big screen with George Pal’s puppetoon, Rhythm in the Ranks (1941) and News of the Day – Headline Highlights of 1956.
