The safety and health of the Alex Theatre’s patrons, employees, visiting artists, and companies is always the top priority of Glendale Arts, the Theatre’s management company. Therefore, in light of the devastating spread and impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in compliance with Governor Gavin Newsom’s mandate regarding public gatherings:

All performances through April 5th at the Alex Theatre are cancelled.

We are in communication with the presenters of these shows regarding rescheduling, and patrons who have purchased tickets for the events affected by the cancellations will be contacted at the earliest possible regarding new performance dates, refunds, and related details. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work as quickly as we can through this unprecedented situation.

GATE TO HEAVEN is an Art House film directed by JIVAN AVETISYAN. Filmed in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), the dialogue is primarily in English with some portions in Armenian, German, and French; non-English dialogue will have English subtitles.

ROBERT STERNVALL (50), a German journalist, returns to Artsakh in 2016 to cover the war, which has been reignited after a 22-year ceasefire. During the course of his journalistic investigations, Robert meets SOPHIA MARTI (35), a young opera singer, who happens to be the daughter of missing photojournalist Edgar Martirosyan, whom Robert had abandoned in captivity during the fall of the village of Talish in 1992. Robert and Sophia’s frequent rendezvous ignite a passionate romance…

Director JIVAN AVETISYAN is best known for his previous feature films, Tevanik (2014) and The Last Inhabitant (2016).
