The Ritz Theatre was a post-World War II all African-American theatre in Danville, VA. One of only two such establishments, the other being the Hippodrome (1920’s-1932), owned and operated by the African-American community in Danville. The Ritz Theatre was a very plain building which was built in 1946, opening on December 14, 1946 according to City records and operated until it closed in 1957.
At present the Ritz Theatre building serves as the home of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith. Many of the display windows are still intact and the front of the building still has the outline of the old ticket booth and markings of where the marquee use to be.
