Although the nearby Rialto Theatre remains, the nearby Ritz Theatre has vanished after years as a district 2 Fox theatre. It was opened as the New Colonial Theatre on December 4, 1916 with Harry Carey in The Three Godfathers". Around 1930 it was equipped for sound movies and was renamed Colonial Theatre.
On March 14, 1936 it was taken over by Fox West Coast Theatres and renamed Ritz Theatre. On January 1, 1956 it was taken over by Edwards Cinemas. It was closed on March 31, 1957. It became a church until 1958. The building was damaged by a minor fire in 1962 and soon afterwards it was demolished.
