A small theatre in a (once) rural village. It was the spot for people in the Village of Webster and the surrounding town to catch a film without having to travel into the city. The facade was a simple 1940’s modernistic type front with a frosted glass trapezoidal marquee. The name “RIDGE” was spelled out in red neon. The theatre was demolished in the 1960’s to make way for the inevitable gas station.
