This a historically African American theater that has been restored located in the non restored Farish Street district of Jackson. The theater stays closed unless there is some very special event taking place, so there is really nothing to see unless they are open for a special event.

This is a good remembrance of the old times when it was actually a theater for blacks. That was during the time of hard core segregation. It is now included as part of the Farish Street Historical District. The black community is quite pleased with this facility being included as a part of history.

I went to an alternative play that wowed me. Jackson needs different types of entertainment and the Alamo will never fail to do so. Will come back soon!!

I was the third person in the women's restroom after intermission. There was no tissue in the stall that I used. Two cheap soap containers at sink. One was empty and the other had water added to the little soap that was in the container. One papertowel holder was broken, the other one was empty. There were no paper towels... More

I attended an event at the Alamo for the first time and being a tall man with long legs was extremely satisfied with the roominess between the seat rows. I could sit down comfortbly without my knees being against the back of te seat in front of me. I definitely plan on attending future events held there.
