Deep Throat at the Alex Theatre… Kind Of

This Fishie drove by the Alex Theatre in Glendale earlier today and was shocked, SHOCKED to see Deep Throat on the marquee. For those of you not familiar with the Alex, Deep Throat is not the kind of flick one would typically expect to see at this particular establishment–even if the film is undergoing a bit of a resurgence. The Little Mermaid is edgy for the Alex. That shameless tramp Ariel doesn’t wear any pants, after all.

Next month’s Joseph the Dreamer, The Musical presented by the Heart of Worship Community Church is more typical fare. Yes, it’s about the bible.

We figured there must be new ownership or the event programmer had a seizure. But the Glendale News-Press set us straight. Turns out the Linda Lovelace biopic is shooting in town and simply borrowed the Alex marquee for the afternoon.

There goes our Friday night plans.
