GLENDALE, CA — Last weekend, there was a memorial afternoon of film at the Alex Theatre for their recently deceased longtime projectionist, George Crittenden.

More than 300 people attended a free cartoon and movie showing on Sunday afternoon at the Alex Theatre dedicated to the theatre’s late chief film projectionist, George Crittenden.

Filmgoers watched a Warner Bros. cartoon of Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Bird, which were Crittenden favorite animated characters, Alex Film Society President Randy Carter told theater audience members.

Crittenden died June 4 in his childhood Glendale home of a brain tumor, his friends said. He was 80.
