This theatre is one of Birmingham's best attractions. It's absolutely beautiful inside and as soon as you step through the doors, you are transported back in time. All the lush drapes and beautiful hanging chandeliers remind you of what it must have been like in the 1920's. They recently purchased a new Wurlitzer Organ and have the Mighty Musical Monday Concert on the first Monday of every month. It starts at noon and is free. Everyone is encouraged to bring lunch and listen to the organist play on the Wurlitzer. It's great.
It's a shame that more entertainers don't opt to perform here. The acoustics are great and there is alot of seating. It's great at Halloween, especially during the silent film version of Lon Chaney's Phantom of the Opera. The organist plays the entire score while the movie plays on. He's so good, you forget it's not the sound from the movie. They have people dressed as ghosts and they make a big production out of it.
They usually have the Symphony in for the New Year's Eve bash. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are great.
This is one of my favorite places in Birmingham and my husband I are always seeking out shows to attend.
