It was owned and operated by a man named Don Trujillo as of 1984 (this information came from Bob Tankersley’s theater directory that year)

I am sad to report that as of July 11th, 2010, the Ritz along with the historic hotel next door, have been demolished. I am told that this was done in late 2009. A group formed to try to save it but failed. Now, Las Animas’s historic downtown now has a huge, gaping hole in it…that is what they call progress!

Status Must Be Changed To “DEMOLISHED”
