The Grande Theatre was built in 1928 by Bruce Collins, owner of several other Corpus Christi movie houses. It was directly across Leopard Street from the Melba Theatre. It opened on November 25, 1928. In the 1930’s, it was being operated by the Robb & Rowley circuit.
Originally built with a simplified Spanish Colonial Revival front, it was later given an Art Moderne façade. It was closed in 1960. In 1961, the Grande Theatre was converted to retail use, becoming part of the adjacent Braslau Furniture Co. store.
As of 2011, the building was vacant. In 2012, the entire block was bought by Nueces County’s Regional Transportation Authority and it was demolished.
