Larry D. Striplin Performing Arts Center
Located at 1000 Selma Avenue, the Larry D. Striplin, Jr. Performing Art Center was part of a restoration project which encompassed almost an entire city block and included the restoration of the Walton Theater, an abandoned movie theatre that had been home to the children of Selma every Saturday afternoon during the forties and fifties.
Today the Performing Art Center hosts a variety of events that enhance the cultural aspects of Selma. In addition, the work of local artists is often displayed in to showcase the talents and gifts of beloved Selma citizens; admission to the exhibits is free.
Tuesday afternoon is movie day for Selma’s Senior Citizens at the old Walton Theater. Each Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., Senior Citizens can view a different movie. The Selma Downtown Association provides popcorn and Pepsi to moviegoers. During the summer months, movies will be shown for Selma’s children every Wednesday afternoon.
A recent and exciting addition to our weekly movie schedule is the showing of newly released movies on Thursdays (7 pm), Fridays (4 pm and 7 pm) and Saturdays (1 pm, 4 pm and 7 pm). A family movie is shown every Saturday at 10:00 am. For ticket information and showtimes, call the Box Office at (334) 874-6691 or visit the theater's website at www.selmawaltontheater.com.
The Performing Arts Center is available for rent to the general public Mondays through Wednesdays weekly. It is ideal for business meetings, small banquets, and workshops.
