Meet in front of the Alex Theatre, 216 North Brand Boulevard in Glendale.
Validated parking is provided in the Orange Street Parking Garage, one block west of the theatre.
This tour is free, thanks to the Friends of the Alex Theatre.
The Alex Theatre in Glendale is a remnant of the grand movie palaces that were a highlight of the golden age of Hollywood. It has been lovingly restored and serves the city today as its premier arts venue. The Friends of the Alex Theatre, an all-volunteer group that provides support for this historic theatre, invites us to an exclusive backstage tour to reveal its fascinating history.
Alex Volunteer Andrea Humberger will provide an overview of the venue's 82-year history, restoration process and current activities and programs. She'll explain the background of the architecture, sculpture and other art objects that grace the interior and exterior. Please note, this will be a walking tour that includes climbing many stairs. Also, this tour is not recommended for small children.
While on the tour keep a sharp eye out for ghosts! Although not included in our tour of the Alex Theatre, later that same day, at 2PM and 8PM, world famous psychic/medium Michael Kouri will answer the question, "Is the Alex haunted?" followed by the 1963 horror classic "The Haunting". For ticket info on this movie and show, call 818-243-ALEX (2539) or visit their website.
