No one has favorited this theater yet
A photo in the Miami Herald archives shows the Ritz Theatre, that served the African-American community during segregation and burned shortly after the picture was taken in January of 1939.
A Miami Herald article from November 2, 2015 about the reopening of the Seminole Theater says the manager of the Ritz Theatre was Jesse Robinson Sr., who would pick up reels of film after each would first screen at the Seminole Theatre so that the black community at the Ritz Theatre could then see them as well.
In May 2015, Google Street View shows the approximate location of the Ritz Theatre, on SW 4th Street near Railroad Avenue, as empty lots.
Later in the 1940’s, the Ace Theatre would open farther west on 4th Street and serve the community until 1974.
