The Future of the Alex Theatre Is Suddenly At Risk

The Alex Theatre has been preparing to open after 18 months of closure due to the pandemic, and the Alex Film Society has been planning its first show since 2019 to be the 23rd annual The Three Stooges Big Screen Event! in November 2021. Unfortunately, we have just learned that the Glendale City Council met in a closed session last week and voted to terminate negotiations with Glendale Arts to continue to operate the Alex Theatre.

The Alex Theatre and the Alex Film Society need your help in one or more of the following ways:

1. Sign the Online Petition

As an Alex Theatre-goer, you can help change City Council’s mind by telling them what the Alex and the Alex Film Society mean to you and why Glendale Arts should continue to operate the Alex as they have done for the past twelve years by visiting GlendaleArts.org to SIGN THE PETITION. More detailed information is available at that link.

2. Send An E-mail Directly to Glendale City Council Members

If you prefer to submit a more personal plea to Glendale’s City Council and City Manager to guarantee the future of the Alex Theatre as the city’s iconic arts venue, please contact:

3. Attend the June 29 City Council Meeting Online at 2:00 PM

At 2:00 PM on Tuesday, June 29, go to the Glendale Public Meeting Portal

The Three Stooges

 

23rd Annual The Three Stooges® Big Screen Event! May Be in Jeopardy

The Alex Film Society has been planning its first post-COVID event to be the 23rd annual The Three Stooges Big Screen Event! this coming November. If the situation regarding the management of the Alex Theatre isn’t resolved in a timely manner, it may not be possible to bring the Stooges back to the Alex screen this year.

So if you want to see this iconic holiday event return, please make your voices heard.
