Please join us for a tour of the ENDANGERED Ridglea Theater
6025 Camp Bowie Blvd. · Fort Worth, TX 76116
Don't miss this chance to see the interior of this iconic theater, one of the last single screen theaters in Fort Worth. Architect John Roberts will lead the tour and the current tenants, Wesley Hathaway and Richard Van Zandt, will answer questions. Beer and wine will be for sale at the concession stand.
The Ridglea Theater opened on December 1, 1950 with a gala party and searchlights blazing in front of the building. Built by A.C. Luther, the Ridglea Theater's 70 foot stone tower announces arrival to the Ridglea neighborhood. Like all buildings in this part of Camp Bowie, the theater and attached office building were designed in the Spanish-Mediterranean style. Original interiors remain, with intricate terrazzo floors and large scale murals of Spanish explorers, chased by pirates, arriving in California.
