The Galax Theater was built prior to 1920 as a silent movie theater at 1919 2nd Avenue North. It was one of a string of cinemas that opened on that block, including the Strand, the Trianon and the Alcazar.
The building was demolished to make way for expansion of the Birmingham Trust National Bank in the 1960s.
