From the Mohawk Valley Library Association website: The Ritz Theatre was opened on January 26, 1929. “Lilac Time” was the first movie shown in the Ritz. Colleen Moore and Gary Cooper starred in it. Matinees were 10 cents, shows after 6:00 p.m. were 20 cents. In the early 1940’s, the Ritz Theatre got a new manager, his name was James F. LaFarr. In the 1950’s, Clifford L. Ritchey owned the Ritz.
The present owner acquired it after the bank foreclosed in December 1981. The name Ritz was changed when LaFarr was manager, and again with Ritchey, who gave it the name of Scotia Theater. It was changed once more, but it was changed back again. It now has about 300 seats.
Richard Adams is the current owner and manager.
