The Rose Theatre was open in 1934. Seating was listed at 500. Through its life the theatre was operated by Paramount Publix, Paramount-Richards and Paramount Gulf until its closing.

On February 8, 1950 it was renamed Ritz Theatre. It closed in the mid-1950’s and was demolished. There is a parking lot where the theatre once stood. Any further information on this theatre would be appreciated.

I may be incorrect is stating that the Rebel Theater was next to Sackler’s Furniture Store.Newspaper archives report that it was the Ritz at the site pictured.

I will go the library archives and correct any misinformation.
