Mr. Scott, why are you such a mean spirited person. I noticed on a few other posts that you have a nasty habit of putting people down. It seems the proper thing to do if you have more to post on a theatre to just post the additional information rather than make such uncalled for remakrs about others. I quit posting to this site for a long time because of people like you. It just is not what the site was established for. You remind me a lot of that character called Michael that used to post uncalled for remarks until they banned him from the site. Maybe they should consider you for the same circumstances.

You a bully Tom Scott if I wasn’t so old I would punch you in the nose. These peoples try hard to add good things here and you just make life miserable for them. I dislike you very much.

The Ritz Theatre, Tallahassee is listed in the Film Daily Yearbook, 1941 with a seating capacity of 400. Same details are given in the F.D.Y, 1943 but with the information that it was being operated by Paramount Pictures Inc, under their subsidairy E. J. Sparks. In the 1950 F.D.Y. the seating capacity was 422.

A bully you say? Hardly my good man. Perhaps a perfectionist is a more apt title. Should LM and Charles continue making ‘mistakes’ the criticism shall continue. Mistakes should not be tolerated by true researchers. Let the weak and whiners depart.

If you are so perfect and a true researcher why did you only give the street for this theatre. If you are a true reseacher what was the address, you only half completed you task.

My gosh,get a life.There was a theater due East of the capital,about a mile.Could the name of the BIG negro theater on W.Tennessee St.be Ritz?Probably not.Ironic,but the theater was right nxt. to the Fiat dealer.The area around there was called Frenchtown back then.Never found out why.

The theater due East of the capitol,down the hill,up the hill and near a Sears was what?It was at least a mile or more due East.

The pictures of the Ritz obviously are not the large black theater I remember.The area looks like it was on the west side of downtown,which wasn’t much in the 40’s.Tallahassee was such a small town well into the 60’s.

I was stuck at the Monroe Street/Park Avenue light today and I just so happened to recognize this building from the photographs. The address should be changed to 108 S. Monroe Street.

Here is a picture of the former Ritz Theatre that I took in October 2010.
