Ritz Theatre-New Kensington, PA

The Ritz Theatre was one of three theatres within three blocks of each other on 5th Avenue. Very impresive front on the theatre which reminds me of the Missouri Theatre in St. Joseph, Mo. The Ritz Theatre was opened in 1922, and by 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. The Ritz Theatre was still listed as open in 1952, but had closed by 1955. During the 1980’s it was Fishers Recreation Hall and today it is a Bingo Parlor.

A document prepared for the nomination of the New Kensington Downtown Historic District to the NRHP says that the Ritz Theatre opened in 1922.
