About This Image:
I’m always thrilled when I come across a classic Movie Palace that has survived the wrecking ball or simply neglect. The Alabama Theatre is certainly a survivor. When this piece of Historic Birmingham was built in the 1920s, movie theaters were still new enough that the builders hedged their bets. The Alabama Theatre had both a vaudeville stage as well as a movie screen. This was just in case those new-fangled movies were a passing fad. The Birmingham Theatre District once included other classic movie theaters, vaudeville stages and more attractions. But the old Alabama Theatre is the lone survivor of that golden age of entertainment. It’s no joke that they don’t build them like this anymore. Lots of modern theaters attempt to capture the charm of the golden age of cinema but it nearly always has a plastic feel to it. There’s just a charm to these old movie palaces that can’t be replicated. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
For me, personally, it’s at night when these movie palaces truly shine, that’s why I wanted this piece of Birmingham art to capture the Alabama Theatre with its signature marquee aglow. I love the feeling of a night out with the passing lights of cars, street lights and the starry night sky beyond. There’s a sense of the magical – that same sense that movies even today still capture, the wonder of it all. I wanted this artwork to have a sense of fantasy to it and believe I’ve succeeded. And there’s a nearly timeless quality to it, something those of us today might appreciate as well as our grandparents who may have gone on a first date there years ago.
I’m always interested to hear what attracts people to a particular piece of art. Have you called Birmingham home? Maybe you still do? Do you simply love old movie palaces like the Alabama Theatre? Or maybe you’re looking for a Birmingham art print as a gift for a friend? I hope you’ll pause for a moment and share what this particular print means to you.

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!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!

Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
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!
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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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 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.
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 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 ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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!
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.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
