The Ritz Theatre was opened October 13, 1929 and operated through to beyond 1950.

The former Ritz Theatre reopened on November 1, 2007 after extensive renovations to the plans of architectural firm Weiss Architecture. Quentin Tarantino was on hand for its debut as the newest star in the Alamo Drafthouse circuit.

On March 30th and 31st, the Ritz theater will present An Audience of One, a hilarious, yet chilling documentary from Mike Jacobs. It looks into the life of a pentacostal minister and his dreams of making a big budget multi-million dollar film. It’s an amazing look into faith and how far it can drive people, and is worth watching.
