Ritz Theater 2019

The Ritz Theatre was constructed in the 1920’s by the Thomas Construction Company. It was still operating in 1950, but later closed.

This Art Nouveau style building now serves as an office building.

Here is a 2009 photo of the former Ritz Theatre.

A Google satellite view shows that the theater would have been in the back of the “Birchfiel” (?) building, under a domed roof. The name “Birchfiel” is at the top of the front facade.

Googling suggests offices and residences in the building today. I wonder what is in the old theater section?
