Martin Theatres opened the Alabama shortly after I came to work in Huntsville in 1966. A shopping center, strangely called just “The Mall” was located at the intersection of University and Parkway. The theatre was behind the mall, on Country Club Drive. The Vista Vue screen masking was fixed, so the ends were cut of off Cinemascope projections. After several years, Martin did a down-the-middle twinning, which was disasterous. It was like watching a movie in a six-lane bowling alley. The Martin in Albertville, AL also had a Vista Vue screen.

Bryan Mercer and Randy Gaylord were awarded a BOXOFFICE Showmanship award for the work they did on “THE WILD McCULLOCHS”.

I have been in hundreds of theaters and this is the only one I have ever seen with a Vista Vue screen. Didn’t even know that is what it was called. How common were they?

The Home Depot, which now sits upon the site where the Alabama was, is located at 1035 Memorial Parkway, Huntsville, AL, 35801.

According to, the theater was at the corner of University (US 72) and Memorial Pkwy (US 231/431). The theater was torn down with the majority of the mall complex in 1998.

The area the theater used to reside in is now a parking lot for the home Depot built at the center of the old mall site.
