Not actually in an alley, though there are plenty around, this building looks more like a Lego fortress. Its unusual shape and smooth surfaces give it a feeling of being just slightly into the future. The Alley Theater is a low, white, crouching piece of architecture. All of this is best appreciated in photography, because seeing the Alley in person one is dwarfed and loses site of the building as a whole. The castle motif is actually utilitarian. The top of the towers house the mechanics of the cooling system.
There are two comments.
I love it, but it needs a scrubbin'.

I worked here in the "70's-early '80's. The building was a constant inspiration when work was boring. It is supremely utilitarian yet like being in a giant wonderful sculpture simultaneously. And the stages are perfect.
