The Regal Theatre

The Ritz Theatre was a small neighborhood theatre built in the 1940’s near the corner of 20th Street and 31st Avenue. It was reopened for a short time in the early-1960’s as the Regal Theatre. It closed again within a year. It was heavily damaged by Hurricane Camille in 1969 and later demolished.
