In the mid to late ‘80s I would go here to practice stage plays with my school. It was the first time I became aware of racial segregation in a way that stuck with me to this day. There was still a sign up that said Negros Only or Colored Entrance, something to that affect. It was located around the double door entrance that is at the far right of the front of the building. I believe it went up straight up to the balcony.

The Ritz is open, but apparently no longer showing movies— at least the current web site doesn’t list any.

We are not closed! We are in full swing operation with stage plays, movies, and multipurpose facility rentals available to the public.

Movies are back on screen at The Ritz! Our first showing will be “Gone With The Wind” on December 15, 2011, 6pm. After that, we will have a week-long Christmas At The Ritz! movie festival and then regular semi-weekly screenings will begin in January 2012.

The Ritz Theatre is back in operation after a three-year remodeling and updating job. New fire sprinkler system, new wiring, new lighting, and a new roof. See www.toglive.com for upcoming events.
