The Gem Theatre opened by 1917. It became the Ritz Theatre which opened on October 29, 1925. The Ritz Theatre was damaged by a fire in 1931, and was rebuilt to the plans of architect Uzzell S. Branson. It gained its current late-Streamline Moderne style in 1951, again designed by architect Uzzell S. Branson.
In the early-1990’s, the Ritz Theatre was restored to its 1951 appearance, and today functions as a venue for live entertainment, as well as movies. The Ritz Theatre, now the Ritz Civic Center, is also home to the Arts Council with displays in the theatre’s lobby area.
