The Alabama Theatre at the Alabama Mall opened on Friday, January 21, 1966. The first movie shown was “My Fair Lady”.
The theatre featured all purpose projection equipment and a Vista Vue screen. The decorations were tangerine and gold colored and the seating consisted of Griggs push-back seats.
The theatre was later twinned in 1981, and free orchids were given to the first 25 ladies that showed up that night, and cigars were given to men while supplies lasted.
The theatre’s last day of operation as an ordinary theatre was July 25, 1985.
The theatre reopened on January 29, 1986 as the Alabama Pitcher Show where movies were shown and beer, wine and food were sold. March 8, 1988 was the last night of business in this format. On March 9, 1988, a “closed for remodeling” notice was placed in the paper, but it never reopened. It was later demolished.
