Opened prior to 1926 as the Majestic Theatre, it was located on N. Bridge Street across from the County Courthouse. By 1932 it had been renamed Royal Theatre. It had closed by 1934. It reopened as the Ritz Theatre, but was listed as (Closed) in 1941 & 1943.

An article in the August 8, 2002, issue of The Clay County Leader said that the paper began publishing in 1932 from a building “…between the Royal Theater (previously the Majestic) and the building occupied by Brad Staggs Tailor and Cleaning Shop.”

Later, Henrietta had a theater called the Ritz, but I’ve been unable to discover if this was a third house or just a later name for the Majestic/Royal. As far as I know, the town’s other house, the Dorothy Theatre, never operated under any other name.
