Los Angeles Historian and S. Charles Lee aficionado Eric Lynxwiler will give a captivating presentation on the legendary theatre architect who, in 1940, re-designed the Alex Theatre’s facade into a fabulous Art Deco/Moderne neon masterpiece. Lee’s other notable projects include the Tower Theatre (1927) and the lavish Los Angeles Theatre (1931) in Downtown LA.
Lynxwiler’s talk will be followed by an exclusive architectural and backstage tour of the Alex Theatre. Built in 1925 and designed by architects Charles R. Selkirk and Arthur G. Lindley, the Alexander Theatre, as it was originally known, features Greek and Egyptian motifs and is listed on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources (No. 20), as well as on the National Register of Historic Places.
