  • The Alabama Theatre was built in 1927 by Paramount Studios as an Alabama showcase for Paramount films. In 1988, the Alabama Theater was completely renovated to restore to its grandeur.
  • Excellent venue--it feels like you are stepping back in time! And to top ot off you can't beat the concession prices!
  • Beautiful facility with so much history. The staff is very helpful and friendly as well.
  • This place is amazing!
  • The silent version of The Phantom of the Opera with the Mighty Wurlitzer at Halloween is a must see. Just like stepping back into history.
  • The two middle lines at the bar are often ignored. Bypass the poor folks in the outside lines.
  • The Christmas movie showings are becoming quite the popular holiday tradition
  • Be sure to visit during Christmastime as the theatre hosts its annual 'Holiday Film Series'. But show up early - seats fill up quickly.
  • Beautifully
  • 2nd Sunday of every month they have open mic poetry. Starts at 7
  • The venue was fantastic for the NEEDTOBREATHE concert on September 11th and the music was stellar! One of the best concert experiences I've ever had.
  • Everything is better here, concerts, plays or any show. Great ambience with old school charm from the theater to the lobby. So much history! It's like stepping back in time.
  • Beautiful facility with great entertainment.
  • Pretty place for a HS graduation.
  • Make sure you come to the bar across the street afterwards!!! Legends Sports Lounge.....
