Old Alabama Theatre sign gets facelift

One of the most well known signs in Houston is now new and improved.

The letters on the old Alabama Theater sign have been restored.

Last month, we showed you when they were taken down to be cleaned and repainted. Houston preservationists were initially worried the letters wouldn't be replaced.

They're now up and looking better than they have in a long time. The old theater will soon be home to specialty grocery store Trader Joe's.
