Did this theater get a digital projector & if so how did it afford to?

The March 12, 1921, issue of The American Contractor said that Williamsport architect F. Arthur Rianhard was designing a part 1-story and part 2-story theater, 39 x 120 feet, to be built at Muncy, Pennsylvania, for J. F. Fahnestock.

As is the case with other small town theaters, the Ritz is struggling to raise the funds necessary to convert digital projection. The current owners are starting fund raising efforts and and becoming a not-for-profit to avoid closing. View article

The concert people are gone. The owner said that he would like to open in 4-6 weeks. He just loves the place. It was his chilhood dream to own the Ritz. He took my phone # in case he ever need a back up projectionist. I told him that I would work for a box of popcorn.

The owner said that he recently got the theatre back from the “teenage concerts people” I guess that they replaced the old Motiograph projectior with a Century. He asked me how to lube it & gave me a tour. Pretty nice inside. Rest rooms are in the basement.

I see that there is now fire hydrant in front of the entrance.

Too bad the Great Escape 12-plex is @ the nearby Lycoming Mall.

Lost…there program was mixed….movies and concerts..so your right concerts could be added to the “Function” above. I was there once since the new owner’s took over. They made some really nice changes. They even redid the neon on the sign. Looks great at night.

My parents actually own the ritz theatre. We havent been showing movies lately due to my parents full time jobs and lack of time. We’re working on it right now. We’re looking into showing independent films. At the moment we are working as a venue and doing concerts for the younger teenage crowd.
