The Alex theatre is old but well taken care of. It has an interior/ exterior courtyard. There was a red carpet and many people taking and drinking while waiting for play yo begin. Has upstairs and downstairs. Great place to see a play!

Saw a Mindy Kaling Live Talks LA book talk here and absolutely adored the venue. Really cool historic theater with amazing architectural features and a great concessions stand (including $4 beers! Great for LA!).
