Built in 1948, opened in 1950, The Ridglea Theater was a state of the art movie theater and a beautiful, art-“decoish” landmark on the West side of Fort Worth.

With the advent of the multiplex, people stopped supporting these wonderful old theaters. The Ridglea was turned into a movie/dinner theater in the early 90’s and closed after a couple of unsuccessful years. It sat vacant for almost three years.

In 1998, Richard Van Zandt and Wesley Hathaway leased the wonderful old building, following a dream they had of presenting Richard’s innovative and unique LASER light shows. While the shows were fabulous, they didn’t pay the rent and the couple turned the venue into a live concert hall with their first musical performance in 1999.

Since then, The Ridglea has become the premier concert venue of it’s size in the metroplex if not in the state. While still great supporters of local music and bands, the Ridglea has become a destination for National and International bands as well, hosting such notables as Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, Deathcab For Cutie, Type O Negative, Cradle of Filth, Therion, The Cult, Hank Williams III, Ministry, Breaking Benjamin, HIM, Willie Nelson and many, many more.
