The Box Office


The Historic Alabama Theatre ( built in 1926) has been so beautifully preserved.   I spent many wonderful times here as a girl growing up in Birmingham.  I can still smell the popcorn, and hear the "Mighty Wurlitzer" being played before the movie started.  Thankfully it's still around, making new memories.  This ornate box office with the gorgeous overhead lights still rings my bell!  ( I snapped this not long ago through the glass!)

I remember when it was being restored, and when it was finished. It was quite an undertaking! Well worth it, I'm so glad they did!
