The State Theatre of Alabama, ASF has been located in Montgomery since 1985
when it moved from Anniston as a result of Mr. and Mrs. Wynton M. Blount’s gift

Park. This program/project has been made possible by grants from the Alabama
State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. #
