DESCRIPTION


Richly detailed exhibits in the Civil Rights Institute reveal slices of black and white life in Alabama from the late 1800s to the present. A series of galleries tells the stories of daily life for African-Americans in the state and the nation and how dramatically different it was from the lives white people of that era took for granted. The powerful Movement Gallery presents the Civil Rights Movement for 1955 to 1963. Here a picture emerges of the bad old days of “Bombingham,” a reference to the relentless violence that rocked the city in the late 1950s and early '60s. In the final exhibits, the Processional Gallery uses life-size figures representing all ages and races to portray the “walk to freedom.” Open Tuesday- Saturday, 10am- 5pm; Sunday, 1pm- 5pm. Admission.

DESCRIPTION


Built in 1927, the Alabama Theatre is one of the nation's last operating movie palaces, featuring first-run and revival films, concerts and other special events. It is one of the grand architectural accomplishments saved from the wrecking-ball fate of many others of that era. The “Mighty Wurlitzer” organ still rises from the orchestra pit and is often played to accompany silent films. Attending an event or movie at the Alabama is one of the most highly recommended activities for visitors to the city. Join us for a tour of the historic Alabama Theatre, the Showplace of the South. The tour begins in the ticket lobby and leads you all the way up to the balcony, concluding in the auditorium with a demonstration of Big Bertha, the Alabama's prized Mighty Wurlitzer Organ. The tour lasts approximately one hour and costs $10/guest. The Alabama Theatre does not have an elevator and stairs are involved in this tour. Doors will open 15 minutes before the tour begins. The door will be locked five minutes after the beginning of the tour and late guests will not be accommodated. Tours are available the first Wednesday of each month at 11am and 2pm, unless otherwise noted.
