“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

Had a quick private tour of the building. The decor is stunning. My fave part was listening to the school kids come in for a field trip in absolute shock and awe of what they were walking into as if it was Cinderella's castle or something.

“Put this one at the top of your list for must see in Birmingham”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Like I said, ya don't want to miss this one. Even the young ones appreciate this grandeur of this elegant and VERY large theater. You can walk on stage, back stage, under stage. Self guided tour and it's free. Def worth seeing.

“A Stunningly Beautiful Place”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

A trip to this theater is well worth your time and money. Whether a concert or a movie this place is a step back in time and is absolutely beautiful. Go for the event and enjoy the architecture!

“FAVORITE THEATRE”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The Alabama is one of my favorite places to visit in Birmingham. The organ is beautiful. We always go during the Christmas holiday to watch the old movies. I think it is a perfect girl's trip or date night venue to see a movie.

“historic”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

For an old, historic place to still be in operation these days is surprising to say the least. Though events and shows are not as often as I would like them to be (not that I could attend all of them if it were), it's still a great place to wander around and explore if you're into architecture and elaborate decors. The interior is is surprisingly big and spacious, the view from whichever seat you get is adequate. We visited as part of a group that explored the nooks & crannies of the theater and it was all good.
