“Beautiful Theater”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

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!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

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.

“An American Classic”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

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.

“Beautiful theatre”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

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! ;)

“Christmas Favorite”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is a MUST at Christmas! Our family has enjoyed going to the movies here every Christmas. Singing carols with the audience is a special treat. And if you're lucky, you might even get to witness a proposal!
