The Ritz Theater
The Ritz Theatre is one of the last historic buildings remaining in Corpus Christi. Built in 1929, The Ritz was the 1st talking movie theater in the area, one of the finest theatres in Texas, and is best known as The Ritz Music Hall in the 70s, home to a great range of artists from Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Stevie Ray Vaughn to Metallica and Def Leppard. Now the Ritz Theater can be toured every first Friday of the month at Art Walk in Corpus Christi.
