The historic Alabama Theatre is easily recognizable with it's huge neon signage. Built in 1927, it's a Birmingham treasure. I recently watched a showing of To Kill A Mockingbird there and just sitting in that gorgeous theatre brought back fond memories of all the zillion movies I saw there when I was growing up. Most likely the side of the building which faces 18th Street goes unnoticed. It's really quite unusual, with it's wonderful shell pattern.
