A total of 1,500 tickets are available for each screening through Ticketmaster. Most are priced at $ 10 plus service charges. (Alabama typically holds around 2,200 people.) Admission is free for children 2 and under.

Doors open one hour before the show. Each screening begins with a song accompanied by music from the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ. Places are general admission, first come, first served. Masks are recommended for those present.

Alabama typically hosts a series of holiday movies, but efforts to do so in 2020 have been thwarted by the pandemic. The holiday series was slated for December, but organizers canceled it after just a few screenings, citing “complications” caused by COVID.

Like many entertainment venues, the Alabama Theater struggled financially during the pandemic. More than 100 events have been canceled or postponed in Alabama and its sister theater, the Lyrical, in 2020, according to site manager Cindy Mullins. This has resulted in a huge drop in income for theaters, which fund 90% of their operating budget by hosting events. Both theaters are owned by Birmingham Landmarks, a non-profit organization.
