Previous Names: New Ritz Theater
The New Ritz Theater was located on 14th Avenue at 38th Street, and opened on February 20, 1942 with Victor McLaglen in “Broadway Limited” & Billy Lee in “Reg'lar Fellas”. It was a replacement for an earlier Ritz Theatre located across 14th Avenue, also operated by Isadore Brotman. In 1945, according to the Film Daily Yearbook, the theatre had 500-seats and was still open. It closed around 1950 and was converted into apartments.
There is a plumbing business at this address today, but I’m unsure if it’s in the theater building or a new structure.
