There is no Main Street in Starke. If you compare the photo of the Ritz above with this photo of the Florida Theatre, you can see that the Florida was built right next door to the Ritz. The Florida is at 101 W. Call, so the Ritz was probably at 103 or 105, depending on how fast the numbers climb in Starke.

The Florida Theatre is now a twin theater. I don’t know if its own auditorium was split or if it took over the auditorium of the Ritz for its second screen. The front of the Ritz building had an office in it when Google’s camera car went by in 2011, but there’s no indication from Street View how deep the office was. The auditorium might still be intact and part of the Florida Twin, or it might not be. Somebody who has been to the theater will have to let us know.
