The Historic Alex Theatre
A registered historic landmark, the “Alexander” Theatre began life in 1925 as a neighborhood vaudeville and movie house. 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.
