In Stroud, Gloucestershire, the Ritz Cinema was located on a narrow street just off King Street. Always always independent, was operated by Mr. Walters, who also ran the Ritz Cinema, Cheltenham. It opened around 1938. It had a 34ft wide proscenium and a cafe. It burned down around 1961. A multi-storey car park was built on the site.

Sorry,but the this was not the site of the Ritz cinema, it was always Woolworths as long as I can remember.The Ritz was down the side where the multistory is now.Isaw many films there before it burned down. The best cinema in town.Ironically the film showing that night was The Fall of the House of Usher

I think you will find that the Ritz, Stroud was operated by Mr Waters (my cousin, Sheila, was married to his son).
