I can vividly remember standing here and getting my ticket to see a movie at the Alabama Theatre. As we opened the doors.... the smell or popcorn! Thankfully this glorious theatre has been restored and is still showing movies here in downtown Birmingham.
Like being ready for a live play!
love these classy downtown theaters. so glad you still have one in use.
It's good to know that not everything is being torn down.
They don't make 'em like that anymore, do they? B&W was a good choice to feel the age and the elegance.
That is gorgeous.
that reminds me of the Pantages theater in Los Angeles...same type of ornate decor...
Our theater started with vaudeville, then movies...
Omigosh, I remember Krispy Kreme Donuts being right up the street also, conveniently on the way to the parking garage after the movie. It was a hole in the wall, but oh, that smell of fresh yeasty donuts. I can almost taste them now.
