1. The Birmingham Theater Building Marker
Inscription. The Briggs Investment Company and John H. Kunsky Theatrical Enterprises erected this large building in 1926 to contain shops, offices, a bowling alley in the basement, and a motion picture theater with facilities for vaudeville productions. The theater stopped operation in 1994 but was restored to its former grandeur and reopened just 2 years later, in 1996. Except for the individual storefronts, which have changed frequently, the facade looks today very much as it did in 1926.
