TALLADEGA -- Crews completed the installation of the new seats at the Historic Ritz Theatre on Friday.
In addition to the new seats, the interior received a fresh coat of paint. The remodel isn’t quite complete though, with new carpeting and aisle runway lights to be installed.
The first event with the new seating will take place Friday, July 20, with a special screening of the 1969 western “True Grit” starring John Wayne. The movie will be introduced by Wayne’s grandson, John T. Wayne, who will be making other area appearances on a book tour.
