Bama Theatre Marquee

Bama Theatre

Established in 1938 through funds from the Public Works Administration (PWA), the historic Bama Theatre continues to captivate audiences with its twinkling lights and exciting year-round performance calendar. Managed by The Arts Council, the theatre is a cornerstone of cultural activity and community events in Tuscaloosa and West Alabama.

The venue provides a rental location for productions presented by non-profit member organizations and community groups as well as concerts presented by outside promoters. Programming presented by The Arts Council includes the Bama Art House Film Series, educational programs, and local and statewide art exhibits.
