The Ritz Theatre was located on E. 12th Street and College Avenue. It was opened November 4, 1925 with Richard Barthelmess in “Shore Leave”. A beautifully designed exterior in a dark brick. Along the sides facing College Avenue the building was divided into sections that were arched in a darker brick and a plaster molding inside smaller arches depicting different characters of theatre.
The front came to a large “V” with a middle entrance. Red shale roofing one an angle lined the four sides of the roof of the building. The Ritz Theatre seated 902. The theatre closed in 1962 and has been a church called the Victory Temple since closing.
