Mo to Fr from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PMLocated in the Farish Street Historical District, the Alamo Theater was built in the 1940s and has been designated a National Historic Landmark. A cornerstone of the area's black business and social community through the years, the building has served as a meeting hall, a movie cinema, and a performing arts theater. As recently as a generation ago, the Alamo was the local host to black Vaudeville performances and black bands. Now owned and maintained by the Mississippi Association for the Preservation of Historic Places, the historic 524-seat theater still puts on a regular schedule of entertainment events.
