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
Quotes & Highlights
“a new and exciting young conductor….Gardner, barely in his thirties, would seem to have it all—energy, ideas, personal dynamism and an urgent, welling musicianship.” —The Washington Post
“…shockingly difficult to play,” says John Adams of his Chamber Symphony, a fun-loving delight based on the tradition of American cartoons. The astonishing 32-year-old Edward Gardner takes on the challenge in his West Coast debut.
Revel in the artistry of LACO principal oboe Allan Vogel, “an oboe virtuoso with few equals and perhaps no superiors,” ( LA Times ) in Mozart’s only oboe concerto.
