News About This Theater
The Tower Theater opened on November 9, 1937. The debut attraction was Ann Sothern in "Danger-Love at Work". It was operated by Robb & Rowley-United Inc.
In September 1956, the Tower Theater became the 23rd theater in North America and 3rd in Texas to be equipped for 70mm presentation.
Throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s, the Tower Theater was Corpus Christi’s main roadshow theater, booking reserved-seat event films such as "Oklahoma!," "Ben-Hur," "The Sound Of Music," etc., often playing them in 70mm and stereophonic sound.
By the mid-1970’s, the Tower Theater was primarily playing Spanish-language films. It was refurbished and reopened under new managership on November 4, 1982 and closed on May 23, 1986. It was demolished in 2014 for a medical center.
