Alex Film Society presents, at Glendale's Alex Theatre, programs of classic feature films, cartoons, newsreels and short subjects together with guest appearances by notable personalities. Our mission is to entertain and educate the audience while demonstrating to film owners that there is a market for classic films and the financial risks involved in film preservation are worthwhile.

Our goal is to present the best possible prints so patrons can enjoy films in the manner for which they were intended. At the same time the Society must pay the expenses associated with our programs and strengthen our ability to maintain and upgrade the film capabilities of the Alex.

General Admission tickets are $16 / $12 seniors (65+) and students (full time with ID) and $11 Alex Film Society members. (Some special events are higher, please see schedule page. Alex Facility Fee is included; additional box office fees may apply).
