The Ritz Theatre is listed in the 1940 and 1943 editions of Film Daily Yearbook, but with no seating capacity given. In the 1950 edition of F.D.Y. the seating capacity is given as 400.

The 1999 National Register of Historic Place application for the Capitol Theatre, oddly makes no mention of the Ritz Theatre. It says that only Jimmy’s Playhouse 1921-1927, and the Capitol (now Masquerade) showed movies between 1921-1978 in Union City, when the Volunteer Twin Cinema opened located South of the downtown. The latter forced the Capitol to become a twin. I added pages for Jimmy’s Playhouse and Volunteer Twin Cinema.
