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!!!!

It makes me smile to see so many people of all ages still laugh at the guys. You just don't hear audiences laugh like that with most films today. We went as part of our Hanukkah celebration but whatever the reason, the place was PACKED! You...continued

Excellent - there will never be anyone who will be able to replace the 3 Stooges! Great to see on the big screen & hear a steady stream of good hardy laughter. Looking forward to the next big screen showing at The Alex Theatre.

A fun night, took me back to my days as a kid. I was laughing so hard I started to cry when Curly charged the bull and took him out. The print quality was impressive, thank you Sony for letting the Alex Film Society use archive prints!
