where the writers are

Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young’s 100th Birthday Gala. The event will be held on January 30th, Thursday at 8p.


A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable’s heart, and advanced women’s status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. A leading lady of such films as The Bishop’s Wife, The Farmer’s Daughter, and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, David Niven, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton.

Young’s son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star’s life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonials, dramatizations, and an exclusive exhibit of Young’s famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life.

The Alex Theatre is located at 216 N. Brand Blvd., between and California in Glendale. It opened as a Vaudeville and silent movie theatre, and later, had a long career as a first-run movie and major preview house. The theatre reopened in 1993 as a performing arts and entertainment venue.
