Seating and Local Attractions

The Alabama Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Birmingham.

We are easily accessible from Interstate 65, Interstate 59/20, Highway 31, and Highway 280.

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.


What is the Alabama Theatre doing to minimize health risks?
In addition to our standard procedures, the Alabama Theatre has implemented these updates:

  1. Additional cleaning of all frequently touched countertops, handrails, doorknobs, and armrests.
  2. Transition of cleaning supplies to a disinfectant version in order to provide a more germ-free environment.
  3. Installation of hand washing reminder signs throughout the theatre.

How can I best ensure my safety and that of others in the Alabama Theatre?
To further minimize risks for everyone, we ask that you please be mindful of the following:

  1. Do not attend a performance or event if you are not feeling well and/or are exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
  2. Practice good respiratory etiquette by coughing and sneezing into your elbow.
  3. Wash your hands often, for at least twenty seconds, using soap. Use hand sanitizer when you are not able to wash your hands.
