We had so much fun. I would not have gone to an event such as this on my own, but with Goldstar, the price is so low (can you say free) that I went ahead a nd got tickets. We plan on going again next year (even if I have to pay full price). Thank...continued

More Information


Opening the show will be the enchanting gentlemen: The Night Blooming Jazzmen playing nostalgic music from the vaudeville era. Our show of shows continues with: Reid & Faversham A Tribute to Stan & Ollie; Farrah Siegel America’s Award-winning Yo-Yo Champion; Rusty & Griff The syncopated Swells, and Eric Buss, the Master of Foolology.

True to the vaudeville genre, the evening concludes on the big screen with a cartoon, vintage newsreel and two shorts: Laurel and Hardy’s The Music Box (1932) and Larry, Moe and Curly in An Ache In Every Stake (1941).

From the late 1800’s through the early 20th Century, vaudeville was the common people’s theatrical experience. Across America and around the world, the wildly popular genre featured variety acts of countless descriptions and later included film programs. The Alex Film Society’s annual recreation of the nostalgic genre is the only vaudeville/classic film show produced regularly in Los Angeles.

Built in 1925, the lovingly restored Alex Theatre was reopened in 1994. It stands today as one of the most important surviving examples of grand Vaudeville and movie palaces of the early 20th century and one of the very few extant theatres with an open forecourt.
