Museums and exhibitions in AlabamaAlabama Theater in Birmingham
The Alabama Theater is a cinema built in Birmingham in 1927. Due to the design of the cinema hall, which can accommodate approx. 2,500 visitors, it strongly resembles a theater. Since only silent films were shown at the beginning of the construction, there is an area in front of the screen for the orchestra that was needed at the time. Those who don't like films will get their money's worth just by admiring the ornate cinema hall.
