Food and drinks will be available to purchase at the concession stand right outside the entrance to the Alex Theater. A full bar and restaurant is a few feet away from the entrance to the theater.

Many of the seats are leather recliners with a fold-out table, but they are first come, first serve unless you purchase a VIP ticket.
