The Ritz Theater was was housed in the downtown Naylor Hotel (later known as the Town House) and known to have been in operation in 1919. It was adjacent to the Lyric Theater.

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 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.
