Waiting For The Alex To Reopen

Alex Theatre Marquee

As we announced in March, all public performances scheduled at the Alex Theatre have been cancelled until further notice due to Covid-19 by Glendale Arts, the theatre’s operator.  Therefore, the Alex Film Society has cancelled all its 2020 screenings, except for the 23rd Annual The Three Stooges® Big Screen Event! in association with C3 Entertainment, Inc. Depending on when the Alex reopens, this longstanding favorite may take place in its traditional time slot over the Thanksgiving weekend in November, or on an alternative date later in 2020 or early 2021. Please stay tuned! The Glendale Arts staff is working remotely and plans to reopen the Alex in phases following State, County and City guidelines. They will open the Alex for television and film production first, hopefully followed by film screenings. The AFS Board continues to meet monthly and plans to reschedule our cancelled shows. The well-being of our patrons, members, and volunteers is important to us, so we will continue to monitor this evolving public health issue as we consider our future show dates in partnership with Glendale Arts.  We appreciate your continued support of the Alex Film Society and your understanding regarding the cancellations – not just of our shows, but the entire Alex Theatre schedule as well. We will keep you informed of upcoming and rescheduled show dates by e-mail, social media, and here on our web site.   Andrea Humberger, PresidentAlex Film Society Board of Directors
