Located in the South Clifton Park district to the northeast of downtown. If you travel down North Washington Street it is hard to miss the old marquee of the Ritz Theatre. The Ritz Theatre opened November 23, 1926 seating 1,175. It was one of East Baltimore’s larger neighborhood theatres and was built for the Gaertner Organization. The entrance was to the right of the building, with the auditorium set slightly back from and parallel to N. Washington Street. There were two small balconies, one on each side of the projection booth. The Ritz Theatre was wired for sound in 1929.
In 1933, its interior was remodelled in a Spanish Atmospheric style. In June 1956 it became an African-American theatre, which closed in 1963.
The former Ritz Theatre has since been used as a food store, offices and a warehouse. The front had been painted all white but the marquee is still up. From the exterior the building looks to still be in good shape.
