The company created the concept of the television commercial and at one time, had 600 employees in Colorado Springs. The program will include video clips of the Alexander Film Company’s award-winning commercials and animations.

Admission is free and open to all!

Doors open to the public at 6:30

Light refreshments are served after the program.

He was a 1991 Heartland Region Emmy nominee for “Everybody Welcome: The Story of Fannie Mae Duncan and the Cotton Club” and 2000 nominee for “The Treasure of the Cripple Creek Mining District.” A retired librarian, he is the former director of Pikes Peak Library District’s cable access channel.
