News About This Theater

Ridglea Theater

Opened on December 1, 1950, the Ridglea Theater was taken over and tastefully renovated by Cinemark in the 1980’s, becoming a three screen movie theatre on December 18, 1987. It became a dine-in theatre on August 12, 1994.

The Ridglea Theater became a concert venue in 1999. It was closed in May 2011, to allow for restoration, and reopened in mid-2012.
