If the walls of Alhambra Theatre & Dining could talk, the stories they would tell would be just like
the ones you'll find in 50 Years of Memories. This commemorative book recounts the grand history of
the oldest continuously operating professional dinner theater in the nation, one of the few still in business.
Author Chuck Day and designer David Parrish have filled the book with photos of many of the shows dating
back to December 13, 1967, when the Alhambra opened with Come Blow Your Horn. Arranged in three acts,
the book chronicles the launch of the theater by Ted Johnson, Leon Simon and George Ballis; its growth
and development directed by Tod Booth; and the 2009 revival spearheaded by Craig Smith.
Complementing the photos are accounts of milestone events, and more than a few surprises.
