The former Ritz Theatre was destroyed in a fire in June 2005. It had been converted into office space. Further information on the Ritz Theatre would be appreciated.

News about the Ritz Theatre in Bartow from The Film Daily of September 12, 1936:

“The old Ernada Theater, Bartow, has been transformed into a modern, down to date house. Western Electric Wide Range projection and sound equipment has been installed. Leonard Bennett, manager, announces a change in name to The Ritz.”

I’ve updated Street View to roughly match the location of this photo by Flickr user drewcjm, who says this is where the Ritz was.

CinemaTour gives the address of the Ritz as 250 E. Main, which is definitely in the block where drewcjm placed it.
