The History of Bama Theatre

This theatre is a prized possession to the Tuscaloosa area. It was designed by architect David O. Whilldin. His goal was to demonstrate a design of “simplicity vs. exotic”. Construction for this building was completed in 1938, and the finished product was unlike any other theatre present during that time. Though simplicity was part of the theme, Bama Theatre was considered to be advanced for its time. In fact, this theatre was the first public building in the city of Tuscaloosa that featured a true air conditioning system!

The grand opening of this theatre took place on April 12, 1938, preceded by a large parade that featured Disney characters and the University of Alabama’s Million Dollar Band. On the opening day, “Bringing up Baby” and various animation features were screened at the gala. Today, this grand facility is still popular, and is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
