Glendale Arts Mobilizing to Keep Historic Alex Theatre

Glendale Arts, which books and stages events including a city-wide annual Armenian Genocide Commemoration, is now mobilizing to keep the historic Alex Theatre as its premier venue and Glendale’s cultural center. California’s closure of all redevelopment agencies has hit the theatre with budget and ownership threats. City officials enacted zoning changes in July to prevent any attempt by the state to claim and sell the property.
