Oh did I have some fun on Sunday afternoon! I was given a grand tour of Birmingham's historic Alabama Theater. Advertised as the Showplace of the South when it opened in 1927, thankfully it STILL is. A word of thanks to Birmingham Landmarks, Inc. who rescued her from the wrecking ball and lovingly has restored every nook and cranny. Today the theater is used for a myriad of cultural and social events. They even show old movies from time to time. The "mighty Wurlitzer organ" is still right there and what a thrill it was to hear it again! Since I grew up in Birmingham, this tour brought back so many wonderful memories for me. My friend Tom Cronier, volunteer extraordinaire, gave me a tour I shall not forget. From the projection room and attic at the top, to the fancy schmancy restrooms in the "basement", I saw and photographed it all. Today four photos, but I promise more in the weeks to come. Sit back and enjoy the show!
