The South In Focus

The South In FocusThis past summer, a group of graduate film students traveled to Birmingham to participate in a six-week film fellowship sponsored by the Southern Environmental Law Center. Each of the students chose an issue related to conserving Alabama’s natural resources.

These students did an impressive job of telling great stories about the extreme importance of protecting our environment and the relationship of that work to our health and to the state’s economic prosperity. The students, who traveled here from around the United States, returned home with a new perspective of Alabama and a deep appreciation of our state and what it has to offer through its incredible biodiversity.

The screening first will take place here at the Crescent Theater in Mobile on January 30 at 6 pm. The next evening we will show the same films beginning at 7 pm on January 31 at the USA-Baldwin County Performance Center in Fairhope. This screening is hosted by the Southern Environmental Law Center.


The Crescent Theater was opened with intent to serve adult patrons. The films we chose usually have a PG-13 rating or higher. We have always tried to follow the MPAA guidelines. We also serve beer and wine. We do not allow cell phone use in the theater after the film has started and we do not allow late entry. Our doors are open every day one hour before each film and due to our popularity we encourage our patrons to arrive early to get a good seat.
