This $200,000 (original 1,230-seat capacity) Bama Theatre opened its doors on April 12, 1938 with Bobby Breen In “Hawaii Calls” along with performances by the University “Million Dollar Band” and a double quartette by a nearby glee club. I’m not sure if a newsreel or cartoon was added too, but the hunt still continues.

There was a nice video of the marquee of the Bama in the Joan Baez documentary that aired last night on PBS.

This is the second Bama theater in Tuscaloosa. The original Bama became the Druid.
