Bama Art House

The mission of Bama Art House is to bring current, contemporary independent film to Tuscaloosa, transforming the Bama Theatre into a cinematic Art House, one night a week. Screenings are Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. Due to scheduling constraints, the Fall 2019 Series will include two bye weeks with no BAH films screened-
September 3 and 17. The world premiere of “The Strip,” a local documentary (not a BAH film), will take place on Tuesday, September 24 with the BAH Series concluding with "The Manhattan Film Festival" on Thursday, September 26.

Instead of season passes for each series we are now offering a punch card- pay $60 for any 10 films. Get your punch card in the box office at any Bama Art House film.
