Art Print Description:
This historic Alabama theatre sign is an original feature of the 1920’s Birmingham Theatre. In fact there were originally two of these signs, one over the front entrance and one over the stage entrance on the side of the building. That second sign was removed in the 1950’s but a replica has recently been installed returning the old Alabama Theatre to its original designs.
I designed this Alabama theatre sign print based on schematics done by the Historic American Building Survey in the 1990s. Documenting the fabric of the building was part of an ongoing survey of historic buildings done by the US Government. Their schematics documenting the sign and the various elevations of the Alabama Theatre reminded me of vintage blueprints. That was all of the inspiration I needed and I decided that creating vintage style plans for the sign would be a fabulous way to present this piece of vintage Birmingham artwork. This design includes the green and red colors of the Alabama Theatre sign. You can almost imagine someone presenting this design to the financiers of the Alabama Theatre back in the 1920s.
I love vintage signs. There’s just something about the sweeping style of them. And clearly many of us feel the same after all they are still copying these types of designs in modern movie theater signs today. There’s just something epic about those larger than life lighted letters. Each of these old signs has a character of its own.
I suspect many of the you who are looking for prints or ready to hang wall art of the historic Alabama Theatre sign are current or former residents of Birmingham. Assuming that’s you, I hope you’ll share your memories of this beautiful classic theater. Do you have special ties to the theater or simply see it as a emblem of your city? Some of you, like me, may simply have roots in Alabama and the name of the sign alone has a warm connotation for you. Be sure to let me know which camp you are in through the comments below. And if you have questions about prints or comments about this Birmingham art, you are welcome to ask them below or send me a message here and I’ll respond as soon as possible.

The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
We ordered several of your pieces for hallways and a few offices at our business. Everything turned out great.
Thank you so much!!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
