The Griswold family’s plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a big disaster

Tickets are $10 each. All tickets are for reserved seating to ensure that parties are able to sit six feet apart. Seats will be sold in pods of 2 and 4. You must purchase the entire pod. For group seating, email Ticketing Manager Lauren Parker at lauren@alabamatheatre.com. Doors open 1 hour before showtime for each movie. The Mighty Wurlitzer Organ will be played at the beginning of the show.

In addition to standard cleaning procedures, the Alabama Theatre has implemented the following policies and procedures to protect guests, staff and volunteers at events during the Covid-19 pandemic:
– All guests have their temperatures checked by security before entering the building and will be provided with a pump of hand sanitizer.
– Masks are required at all times.
– Tickets are scanned, touch free.
– Hand sanitizer stations are spread throughout the theatre and disinfectant wipes are available for guests who wish to wipe their seat down before sitting.
– All seats are reserved and are sold in pods of 2 and 4 to keep parties separated by at least 6 feet.
– The bar and merchandise stand only accept cards, no cash.
– Plexiglass shields and hand sanitizer are set up at every bar station.
– High touch surfaces are sanitized every 30 minutes.
– The theatre is disinfected after every event with nontoxic disinfectant solution using an electrostatic fogger to ensure that every surface, including fabric, has been disinfected.
The Holiday Film Series is the largest fundraiser of the year for Birmingham Landmarks, Inc., the nonprofit organization that owns and operates the Alabama Theatre and Lyric Theatre. Even if the Holiday Film Series sells out every movie, we will be down more than $2 million in revenue this year due to the effects of Covid-19. Please consider making a donation to support the survival of the Alabama and Lyric Theatres. Without your help, we’re history.

Why can't I buy from somewhere else?
If there is a problem with your ticket, the only way that we can look it up in the ticketing system is if it was purchased from Ticketmaster. You must be able to show identification that matches the name on the ticket, show the account number that was used to purchase the ticket or show the credit card that was used for purchase. It is possible for the purchaser of valid tickets to transfer them to another buyer through Ticketmaster.com or the Ticketmaster app.


No weapons of any kind are allowed in the Alabama Theatre.
All guests will be scanned with metal detectors and bags will be checked before entry to the building.
