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 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. Its totally new and state of the art sound, lighting, and rigging systems makes the 1,460 seat Alex Theatre a historic, cultural, and artistic treasure for the presentation of excellence in music, opera, theatre, comedy, film, popular entertainment, lectures, and dance to the people of Glendale and the whole Los Angeles Basin.
