Opened June 1913, as a vaudeville, opera and live performance theater under the management of Fred Brewer.
In 1917, its name was changed to the Orpheum Theatre, and continued to be used for vaudeville and live performance.
In 1935, extensive interior and exterior renovations were made by noted Jacksonville, Florida Art Deco architect Roy A. Benjamin. The theater was renamed the Ritz Theatre and and is noted as “South Georgia’s finest theatre” and pledges to run first run films only. It continued as a movie theater until 1977.
In 1986, the Ritz again returned to the performance arts when Waycross Area Community Theatre purchased the building for live community theater productions.
