Revenues have dropped, so the Ritz will present a fund-raising show on April 5. Philly.com story here.

The Haddon Township Historical Society has a page of pictures and history about the Ritz Thetare. The link is: View link The historical society web site also mentions that the Ritz will be the location for a film about a closed cross-town theatre — The historic Westmont Theatre. Brent J. Donaway’s documentary film The Grand Old Lady (Footprint Films)is going to premiere at the Ritz Thetare on May 6, 2007. Info is from a flyer located at www.myspace.com/TheWestmontTheatre I think it is really cool that one local historic theatre, the Ritz, will be the premiere location for a film about another local theatre.

Looks like a nice cozy little theatre. I wish the owners success.

Address is 915 White Horse Pike, Oaklyn NJ 08107. Although the theater is in Haddon Township, it has an Oaklyn mailing address and was always shown as an Oaklyn theater in movie listings.
