The 1,230-seat Bama Theatre opened in April 1938 with the movie Hawaii Calls starring Bobby Breen.
The building has an Art Moderne exterior, however the interior is a very late atmospheric design with a Spanish courtyard theme, specifically styled after the Davanzati Palace in Florence.
In the mid-1970s the theatre was converted into a performing arts center as was home to the Tuscaloosa Symphony, Theatre Tuscaloosa, and Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre, among others.
