It's not just a landmark, it's a destination.

Voters Pick Alex Theatre, Damon’s Steakhouse & Massage Envy Spa Best in LA

Glendale’s historic Alex Theatre is an all-purpose venue ideal for concerts, theatre, dance, comedy, film screenings, location shoots, cast & crew screenings, wrap parties, receptions, awards shows, and special events. The facility includes a 1,381-seat auditorium, outdoor forecourt, State-of-the-art sound capabilities and spectacular marquee. The Alex has hosted such performers as Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Jackson Browne, Garbage, George Clinton, Crowded House, and is prominently featured in the first season of the Disney Channel mega-hit, Hannah Montana.

“Los Angeles is a very competitive market and the fact that the Alex Theatre was a runner up in last year’s competition and took first place this year, is a testament how special the venue is and how much the historic Theatre means to the community we serve. – Barry McComb, Executive Director and CEO of Glendale Arts, the Management Company of the Alex Theatre.

This Tiki Hut monument to Meat lovers has been in business since 1937, and the menu hasn’t changed much since then. Steaks galore, burgers, and fresh grilled daily seafood specials are among the choices as you dine in a Polynesian fun filled atmosphere. The customers are loyal – many go back almost as far as the restaurant. This steakhouse is known for serving generous portions at reasonable prices and Great Mai Tai’s.

“Damon’s is more than just a local Steakhouse, we are a Glendale institution. Our customers helped us win this amazing honor two years in a row and we are so proud to be sharing first place with our community and business partners, the Alex Theatre and Massage Envy Spa. – Patrick Campbell, Owner, Damon’s Steakhouse

At any given time, I can park my car – for less than $3.00 – and walk to Massage Envy and relax with a great massage, go to Damon’s and dine on a great steak and then off to the Alex for a show. It’s just one of many things that makes the Downtown Business District perfect place to spend an evening. – Harry Hall, President of the Downtown Glendale Merchant’s Association

Status Update from the Alex Theatre


As the saying goes, "The Show Must Go On." However, sometimes, unprecedented circumstances call for the show to be paused. This is one of those rare times.



Currently, our shows through April 5th will not be taking place on their original dates.



The Glendale Arts and Alex Theatre staff have been hard at work behind-the-scenes collaborating with the presenters of these performances to reschedule dates and communicating with ticket buyers about their options.



We are continuing to monitor directives established by local, state-wide, and national authorities and will post developments on shows scheduled beyond April 5th as they happen.



While our staff is working remotely, we are with our beloved Alex in spirit, and our hearts remain committed to the thousands of patrons we happily serve every week and our extended family of presenters, producers, performers, and community members who call the Alex home.



These are trying time for everyone. The economic impact on the dual industries with which we identify - non-profits and performing arts/live entertainment - has been swift and severe.



If you are able, we ask you make a gift at that will allow us to continue our work at the Alex Theatre - a place for arts and entertainment to be enjoyed; a symbol of history, beauty, and community - during this time, so we are ready to bring healing and happiness to all who need it when the time is right.



We wish all of you and your loved ones health and safety throughout this situation and can't wait to welcome you through our doors again when the show is ready to go back on.



With our love,


Glendale Arts/Alex Theatre Management Staff
