The Ritz Theater in Rockville, IN is still in operation and has recently made the switch to HD Projection equipment from the old 35mm celluloid film. The Parke Players do an excellent job of keeping its historic value while keeping it in operational condition with the new technology updates.

The Michael Stipe reference was probably something to do with the REM song “(Don’t Go Back To) Rockville”. I don’t believe this was about Rockville, Indiana.

I clicked on the last link (of the recent marquee pic). The caption mentions Michael Stipe (REM). What does he have against the theater?

This theater also shows first run movies on Sat, Sun & Wed. I first went several years ago, and the screen & sound were poor. That is no longer true. I went late Nov 2005, and the theater is lovely, the screen & sound fine, with nice small displays of historical interest. I plan to go frequently.
