The Bama Theatre is a theatre in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It was built in 1937 through the funding of the New Deal agency that was responsible for most civic projects that were completed during the Great Depression, the Public Works Administration.

Built after the design of the Birmingham architect David O. Whilldin, the Bama Theatre stood as the grand movie house of the community. It was made in the mixture of the most popular architectural styles of the day, Moderne, Arts Deco, and Beaux Arts, fashioned after the Davanzati Palace?s courtyard in Florence, Italy. The structure was also noted for being the only air-conditioned building in the area at the time.

The Bama Theatre is now used as one of downtown Tuscaloosa?s visual and performing arts center today.
