Ritz Theatre

Opened in 1926, the Ritz Theatre’s Spanish Renaissance facade was fashioned in red tapestry brickwork, but the auditorium was disappointingly plain.

The Ritz Theatre was closed on May 15, 1951 with John Wayne in “I Cover the War”.

Montgomery and Houston built the new Ritz Theater in 1926. Fred Pickerel, who owned the Murray, Mission and Majestic, purchased the Ritz in 1927. He and his partner converted the Ritz to sound. The Ritz Theatre closed May 15, 1951 with “I Covered the War.”
