The Ritz Theater was was housed in a downtown San Angelo hotel and known to have been in operation in 1919.

The Ritz Theater was still operating in 1950. At some point the theater suffered a fire due to the highly flammable nitrate film used during that era. The fire was possibly spelled the end of Ritz Theater.

A Ritz Theater is listed in 1955 for San Angelo, Texas with 829 seats. Would that be this theater or a later Ritz Theater?

This was an Robb and Rowley theatre 1930-1955. They owned nine in town in 1950.

Did this theater survive the fire and operate into the 1950’s?

A somewhat compromised photo of the auditorium of the Ritz Theatre illustrated an ad for the American Seating Company on this page of Motion Picture Times, September 8, 1928. The caption credits the theater’s architect, Roy E. Lane.
