1949 photo & description credit Seneca County Museum. (December 2018)

“This Month in Seneca County History – December 1928 – It was on December 20th, 1928 that the new Ritz Theater opened in downtown Tiffin, and this month we plan to post some historic photos to celebrate this event that happened 90 years ago. Today’s photo was taken probably in 1949, because the Ritz marquee is advertising their current movie “It Happens Every Spring” starring Ray Milland and Jean Peters. This movie was released in June 1949.

This is a great photo that offers us views that we don’t normally see. On the left of the entrance is the “Ritz Nut Shop” where you could get beer, wine and nuts. We also love the nice Coca-Cola sign on the bottom of the nut shop door. Above the main front doors are advertisements for a future movie at the Ritz called: “Come to the Stable”, a movie that was released in September 1949. To the right of the front doors is an open stairway to the second floor, and today this opening is now covered by a door."
