Ridglea Theatre Renovations

ridglea.jpgThe son of the Ridglea Theatre's former projectionist is heading up the theatre's renovation project, reports the Star-Telegram. Sam Austin remembers spending Saturdays watching films there while his dad worked, and taking his high school sweethearts there for dates. That the theatre had fallen into disrepair saddened him, so he called up the latest owner and offered his help in restoring the space to its pre-1950 glory. They're tearing out a kitchen, restoring murals and tile and planning to host 12 events a month once the $1 million renovations are complete. [Star-Telegram]
