Visit http://3-dfilmexpo.com/ for more information about the event. I took the day off work so I could watch it. After all, I don't get to see my father up on the silver screen in 3-D very often. And it was great! November 24, 2012 - Glendale, CA Alex Film Society Presents THREE STOOGES BIG SCREEN EVENT! at the historic Alex Theatrewith
a presentation by renowned Three Stooges expert Jim Pauley. I was
