We always enjoy going to movies at the Alabama Theater. There is a great sense of culture and history in this theater. And of course, we love the yearly Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Ball in October!

The best place in Birmingham to take in a Christmas flick. This is a real treasure in our city. It is a great place to spend New Year's Eve for a night of music and celebration.

Go enjoy the summer season of movies at the grand dame of theaters in Birmingham. Huge screen, great decor and really fabulous old theatre. Take a stroll through time and sit in the balcony.

I have loved seeing movies here at Christmas time. Also went during the summer series. It's a treat to be in such a beautiful theatre! You feel like you should be dressed all fancy to go see a movie, but you can wear your jeans!...More
