The Ritz Theatre launched September 10, 1937 with the film, “Slim.” The downtown theatre replaced the Strand Theatre. Owner Ed Rowland decided to move into the larger location in the Diffey Building and closed the Strand on September 6, 1937. In 1955, the Ritz transformed to widescreen CinemaScope projection. The Ritz appears to have folded after October 29, 1962 screening of “The Hustler” likely at the end of a leasing cycle.
