Birmingham, Alabama is a growing, fun, active metropolis.  More people live in Birmingham than any other city in Alabama.  Since the town’s origin in 1871, Birmingham has become a center of education, art, and culture.  There are several historic landmarks that are still thriving today.  Some of the most popular landmarks that are still in use are the town’s multiple music venues.  A few of the most popular ones are the Alabama Theatre, the Lyric Theatre, and the Carver Theatre.

The Alabama Theatre was built in 1927 and is located in its original location, which is now known as the historic theater district.  When the Alabama Theatre first opened, it only showed silent films.  The building still houses the original Mighty Wurlitzer organ that provided the music during the silent films.  Known as “Big Bertha,” the organ brings people from all over the country to the Alabama Theatre to see and hear it in all its glory.  Check out the video below when it was featured on the PBS show Antiques Roadshow.
