[WATCH] My delightful meeting with 101-year-old Alyse Laemmle of Laemmle Theatres

As soon as I heard the magic words from my friend Tish Laemmle– “She’s 101 years old”– my immediate reply was: “Can I meet her?” A few weeks later, on a sunny Sunday afternoon, I drove down to Hermosa Beach to chat with Alyse Laemmle, 101-year-old wife of the late co-founder of the theater chain, Kurt Laemmle. Here is a little taste of our delightful rendezvous.
