If the Ritz Theatre was in the Pleasant Ridge section of Cincinnati, then it might have been this project noted in the July 22, 1927, issue of Motion Picture News:

“Cincinnati — Owners, Montgomery Amusement Co. Architect, Howard McClorey. Contracts awarded to Leo J. Brielmeier. Store and theatre bldg. Seating capacity, 750. Location, Montgomery Road and Woodmont St., Pleasant Ridge.”
“Woodmont” would be an easy mistake for Woodburn, and typical of the error-ridden, hastily-assembled trade journals of the period. Howard McClorey designed the Hyde Park Theatre, located about a mile east of the Ritz.
