The AlexBecame a hangout for gays in the late 50s
A shame this excellent site is dieing like the people that attended the now closed shows as kids back then.
very little activity anymore.
BEWARE, DANGER LURKS ON EVERY STREET CORNER IN THAT AREA NOW AND HAS FOR OVER 40 YEARS !!!!
What a shame,long gone now like my youth !!And all the best theateres.The good old days are history now,in many many ways.
The ALAMO was a nice clean well run theater,
unlike the FAMOUS which was a dirty place.
Another plus was the candy store nextdoor and the
ALAMO Jewish Deli on the corner of Lawndale & Chicago av.
with big Dill Pickles in a barrel for a nickle.
We ate many in the ALAMO while watching the movies!!
