Alex Theatre SpireExplore the Alex

The Alex Theatre was designed by architects Charles R. Selkirk and Arthur G. Lindley and completed in 1925 as the Alexander Theatre, a Vaudeville and motion picture house with Greek and Egyptian motifs. It stands today as a surviving example of grand Vaudeville and movie palaces of the early 20th century and one of the very few extant theatres with an open forecourt.

The 1,450 seat Alex Theatre is a historic, cultural and artistic treasure for not only the people of Glendale, but the entire Los Angeles Basin.
