If you travel down North Washington Street it is hard to miss the old marquee of the Ritz Theatre. The Ritz Theatre opened in 1925 seating 1,120. It was one of East Baltimore’s larger neighborhood theatres.

The Ritz Theatre closed as a movie theatre in 1955, and has since been used as a food store, offices and a wharehouse. The front has been painted all white but the marquee is still up. From the exterior the building looks to still be in good shape.

If you look at the map view from around 2007 there were plans to turn the building into a supermarket. Here is a photo circa 1970 from a monograph on Baltimore theaters:
