The December, 1911 issue of Motography reported that a movie house to be called the Princess Theatre was under construction at Frankfort, Indiana. The same item noted that a house called the Palace Theatre had recently opened. The 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory lists no fewer than seven movie houses in Frankfort, the Princess (but not the Palace) being among them.

Ritz Theatre was a new name for a house that was originally called the Princess Theatre, and which was in operation by early 1912. According to this page at Frankfort Place Forum, the Ritz building has been occupied by the Dan Caddell Jewelery store since the mid-1950s. The address is 54 N. Main Street.
