Ring in the New Year at the Alabama Theatre’s 90th Birthday Bash and join in the cheers as the switch is flipped, lighting the new 18th Street sign for the first time.

The nearly 60-foot-tall sign, which replaces one that hung in the same spot until 30 years ago, will complete the exterior restoration of the Alabama Theatre, returning the outside of the building to its original look. It will match the sign that already lights the Third Avenue side of the theatre.

The theatre will mark this historic moment on New Year’s Eve as part of its 90th birthday party. The evening will kick off with a concert featuring Sister Hazel, Taylor Hicks and a video saluting the Alabama’s first 90 years, produced by WBRC Fox 6.After the concert, the crowd will head outside to continue the celebration. With noisemakers and party favors in hand, they will count down the clock until at the stroke of midnight, when the sign will light up and once again shine on downtown Birmingham.
