West Coast Theatres built the Ritz Theatre which opened on October 15, 1926 with Harry Langdon in “The Strong Man”. It was located on Wilshire Boulevard near S. La Brea Avenue, was later operated by Fox West Coast Theatres.
In its later years, it was closed to the public and was used as a reserved film house by Michael Todd. It was also later used as a venue for live theatre and second run films as the Lindy Opera House. A last gasp effort to show vintage films and renamed American Theatre sadly failed and it was closed and converted into a Korean church.
In 1977 the former theatre was demolished and replaced by a parking lot.
