The Fox Ritz Theatre


The Ritz, on Wilshire Blvd. near La Brea, was a 1926 theatre with 1,660 seats designed by Lewis A. Smith. After its regular exhibition days were over it was a private screening room for Michael Todd and later even had a fling with legit theatre. The photo is an early view from the Los Angeles Public Library. The building was demolished in 1966.  See our page on the Fox Ritz for more photos.
