Alabama Theatre in Birmingham - AL 35203

The Alabama Theatre was created in 1927 by Paramount Studios as an Alabama showcase for Paramount films. It was applied primarily as being a movie palace for 55 years, in the exception from the annual Miss Alabama pagent as well as the weekly Mickey Mouse Club. In 1987, the owners on the facility declared bankruptcy and the theatre was purchased by Birmingham Landmarks Inc., a non-profit corporation.

The new Alabama Theatre for ones Performing Arts hosts numerous live events, as well as films. Every year the Theatre hosts over 300 events attended by a half million Birmingham area citizens.

In 1998, the Theatre underwent a complete front door to back door restoration. The work was done by EverGreene Studios from New York City. In 8 months, the theatre went from its look of faded grandeur to a sparkling 1927 seem with all of the gold leaf paint either replaced or cleaned. In addition to the restoration, new carpet was installed inside the ladies lounge and new drapes had been installed on a stage and organ chambers.

If you want to go to the movies there are a few things you have to do before you go anywhere. Depending on the theater you go to, you may have the option to get reserved seating to guarantee a specific set of seats in the theater. This usually only happens on premiere night of a movie and only happens at certain theaters, otherwise, expect to arrive to the theater about 10 minutes early to find good seats. Some theaters offer web services that let you purchase your ticket online and pick it up at the theater to further guarantee seating availability. Expect to pay about $10 for a movie ticket. This price varies depending on the area of the country you're in but $10 is average. After a movie has its run in the big theaters, a few months later it will be shown in smaller budget theaters that often have tickets for as little as $2. If you're willing to wait a few months to see a film you can get some great deals.
