Birmingham Landmarks’ Mission:

Our mission is to preserve and protect the Alabama and Lyric Theatres and any other historic building that may be in danger of neglect or demolition and to find a use for these buildings that will enrich the lives of Alabama citizens.

Our Story – The Historic Alabama & Lyric Theatres:

Birmingham Landmarks, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 1987 by volunteers and members of the local chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society who wanted to save the Alabama Theatre's Mighty Wurlitzer organ. In the process these volunteers ended up saving and restoring not just the Wurlitzer, but the historic theatre that housed it. Birmingham Landmarks has operated the 1927 Alabama Theatre successfully ever since as a center for over 150 arts performances, concerts, movies, and other special events, annually.

In 1993 Birmingham Landmarks acquired the 750 seat, 1914 Lyric Vaudeville Theatre for $10 and by 2016 had raised $11.8 million to restore the Lyric to its former glory. Tens of thousands visit it annually as well. Both theatres are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are jewels for our city and state. The Alabama is officially Alabama’s state historic theatre. Following is a short list of some of the entertainers who have performed at the Alabama and Lyric as have thousands of youngsters who have performed in dance competitions and recitals throughout the last century.
