WHAT'S YOUR RITZ STORY?

We’re turning 100 and ready to celebrate.

Our story is a community story. We invite you to share your personal recollections and experiences about visiting the Ritz Theater to be included in our Ritz Theater Oral History Project.

Maybe you grew up watching films here, were inspired by a musical performance, have a special memory, or maybe our theater was the first time you were on stage, we’d love for you to tell us all about it.

We are collecting stories all year long to include in a 100-year history book. To help us kick this party off with a bang, early story submissions may be selected to be showcased on our website and be a part of our video history project. We will continue to collect and share community stories throughout the year…so keep your stories coming.

If you have any personal photographs taken at the Theater, news clippings, or historic playbills we’d appreciate seeing those as well.
