Bama Theatre in Tuscaloosa gets marquee makeover

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The wrap-around marquee of Tuscaloosa's iconic Bama Theatre is getting a 21st-century touch.

The Tuscaloosa News reports ( ) that the central panel of the three-part marquee has been converted to a digital LED screen after a week of installation that began March 13.

The digital LED screen, which will display current and upcoming shows and events, can be programmed from inside the building.

With the older method, an employee had to climb a ladder and place plastic letters by hand.

The Bama, in downtown Tuscaloosa, hosts films, theater, dance, exhibits, comedy, music and other events.
