The Ritz Theatre was at 216 Broad Street, and the theater operated from 1936 to 1972, according to this web page, which features many historic and recent photos of the Ritz building, along with much other information about the house. The entrance to the Ritz was in an existing building converted from a cafe, but the auditorium was newly built in 1936. The current occupant of the building is a sporting goods retailer
