1928 is a bad year for the Alabama Theatre. It opened just about a year ago on Christmas day 1927. But those nasty Steiner brothers held the mortgage on the building. The first time the theatre owner (that little fellow who always dresses like Robin) was late on his mortgage payment the Steiner Bank padlocked the door.

Hmmm, that might be a motive for foul play.

You can see the Florentine Building to your right and the Brown-Marx Building to your left. You’re also just a short distance from Morris Ave. and the Terrace Court Apartments.
