Discovering Film History at the Alex Theatre

by Dana Variano, Digital Manager

I took a walk over to the Alex Theatre on Brand Blvd in Glendale this morning. I wanted to take a closer look at one of the neighborhood’s landmarks, and I’m glad I did. The theatre’s exterior is absolutely stunning, and the feeling of film history as you stand in the courtyard was inspiring. As a film and history buff since my teenage years, I can’t wait to have this historic landmark as the backdrop of the upcoming CicLAvia.


CicLAvia Meets The Metro Kid

by Dana Variano, Digital Manager

Screen_Shot_2017-06-05_at_11.21.13_AM.pngLast week, I went to Glendale with Gabe to meet with a superstar in the active transportation field: seventeen year old Kenny U., from Glendale, California. You see, I've wanted to meet Kenny for quite sometime now. About a year ago, a new player in the active transportation social media scene emerged. @KenU092 started sharing his public transportation journeys, and being the first to like and retweet my social media posts. Since then, he’s become one of CicLAvia’s biggest social media fans and supporters. Kenny was super excited that CicLAvia was coming to Glendale, his hometown.  So we had to meet in person to find out a little bit more about our biggest fans –and I’m glad we did. We met at the beautiful Glendale Transportation Center, and chatted about his passion for public transport, CicLAvia coming to Glendale, and guava cheese pastries.
