Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More

What can I say? We're talking about the Stooges here. They're silly, irresponsible and politically incorrect by today's standards yet totally loveable and still hilarious after all these years. I loved every minute of it. I tried not to laugh but it was unavoidable. The crowd roared with enthusiasm. There were the stooges sleeping three to a bed even though they were married. Any attempt at responsibility ended in disaster. My favorite was WHAT'S THE MATADOR as our trio of nitwits ends up in a bullring in Mexico. Hey, that doesn't look like Moe and Larry in the a bull costume anymore. Well, you if you know the stooges, you get the picture. A retrospect of Shemp Howard's film career when he left the Stooges was fun and humorous. Even as a gangster, he would still be Shemp the stooge. It was a fun evening and I hope to attend next year's screening.

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!
