It Ain't Over Till...—Fort Payne, Alabama

Built in 1889, during the industrial boom, and opened in September 1890, the Fort Payne Opera House is still in use. When the silent movie era came along, the opera house was converted into a movie theater.

Today, the Opera House regularly hosts live theater productions, professional ballet, and musical performances from classical piano to symphony.

The Fort Payne Opera House is on the National Register of Historic Places and the National Register of 19th Century Theaters in America.
