Where are the best Alabama Theatre seats located?
The Alabama Theatre provides amazing seats for all attendees, including floor choices and balcony seating. When viewing motion pictures, the best seats for patrons are in the center of the theatre, as the seats won't place viewers too close to the screen, but eliminate the unwanted interference of others getting up and walking around in front of them. When taking in a live production or concert, the balcony seats are incomparable. The Balcony Q offers the best seating in the theatre and gives patrons a full view from all angles.
