About Ritz Theatre
The Ritz Theatre opened December 20, 1928 as a vaudeville and movie house. The theater was purchased by the non-profit Tiffin Theatre Inc in the early 1980s and renovated in 1998.Throughout the theatre, The Ritz boasts an Italian Renaissance design. Terra cotta and buff brick cover the street front facade. A terra cotta mask of the Greek muse of tragedy, Melpomene, watches over the theatre. Inside the outer lobby, a floor of mosaic tile greets visitors. Fixtures of solid brass and black onyx marble walls portend the richness awaiting inside.
