RITZ (PARKWAY) Theatre; Wilmington, Delaware.

The Parkway Theater opened in 1921 at Delaware Avenue and Adams Street. A Moller organ opus 3184 was installed that year. In the 1930’s this theater was known as the Loew’s Theater. Around 1941 it was taken over by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. and the name was changed to the Ritz Theater.

The Ritz Theater was closed in 1962 and was demolished.

Can anyone give me info on the Cinemart on Gov Prinz? I can’t find any info anywhere, but, I stop to look at it every time I’m in the area. What a mystery. The only thing I can tell is that I was built in the 60’s due to the chandelier and font on the front sign.
