During the last years that Mann Theatres had it. It was used in part to train and certify chiefs of staff and Asst. Managers in the art of projection. When select Mann theatres would opt to run limited service with the projectionist union in Los Angeles.

I worked there in 83/84. I remember the ghost upstairs and the creepy feeling I would get when I was up there alone. I remember ‘Dollar Tuesdays" and was working there for the opening of Ghost Busters and Foot loose. It would get sooo packed on those Tuesdays. It was a job I had during high school and really enjoyed it. It was demolished and they put a Tower records in its place (which since has closed). I wish the city of Glendale would stop tearing down all of those great old buildings and replacing them with new stale looking ones. A lot of Brand Blvd has lost its classic past. Bummer.

I worked here in late ‘79 thru the early 80s. I began as an usher, worked my way up to assistant manager and temporary acting manager. When I was hired on it was still a single screen. I worked there thru the 1980 remodel (see pic in ken mc post above dated 4/23/09), when it became the first multiplex in Glendale. I recall the theatres on Brand Blvd at the time being some of the last single screen theatres in Southern California. Now only the Alex Theatre remains as a vestige to those times.
