Birmingham Photo of the Day (10): Loew's Temple Theatre, 1925
This photo shows the Loew's Temple Theatre in 1925 and is from the Birmingham Public Library's Digital Collections. The theater was located at the Masonic Temple at 517 19th Street North.
The marquee is advertising a combination of live acts and film including "Minstrelsys greatest stars" and The Dancers, a silent melodrama released that year. Interestingly enough, the film was based on a 1923 play that ran in London and starred none other than Alabama's own Tallulah Bankhead.
