Description
Exterior view of the Alex Theatre. The film "Star Trek" is advertised on the marquee. Designed by architects Charles R. Selkirk and Arthur G. Lindley with an emphasis on Greek and Egyptian themes, it opened its doors as a Vaudeville and motion picture house in 1925. In 1940 by S. Charles Lee added the 100 foot tall Art Deco tower. Included in Lee's design were the three-sided marquee, outdoor ticketing kiosk, and the decorative terrazzo floor crested in bright tropical colors. The exterior of The Hedy Shop, a clothing store for women and children, is visible on the right.
