Uncompromising beauty with historical grandeur, The Ritz Theater is a dynamic space to host not only theater or screen productions, but also catered and cocktail receptions, weddings, seminars, concerts, recitals, fashion shows, and pageants. With its high cathedral ceilings, intricate architectural details, and built-in concessions bar for service, display, or VIP seating, your guests will feel as glamourous as all of the other Hollywood icons and performers that have graced the stage. Boasting 900 sq. feet of center stage with three additional raised platforms, a side catwalk, and an orchestra pit, lending itself to unlimited creativity in its’ use. In addition, The Ritz Theater hosts one of the largest Movie Screens with High-Definition projection in the area, and measures an impressive 43 x 20 screen to vividly display your images and video productions. Seating in the theater is not stationary, therefore offering you complete flexibility if you choose a dinner theater style, standing cocktail, or theater-style seating. Even with its preserved historical charm and glamour, you will find The Ritz Theater fully outfitted with state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and other production technology for all of your event needs.

The renovated Ritz accommodates 425 seats and we have reduced that to 200 seats. Our many aisles and stairways enable us to provide successful social distancing.

We have dramatically expanded our restaurant (The Black Box Cafe) and are offering full dinner service.

Theater space is now divided into private boxes to accommodate small groups of 2 to 10 guests. This configuration, along with our staggered reserved row seating, will offer extremely limited contact with other guests.

Each private box has both tables and chairs to accommodate dining. The theater will open 2-hours prior to curtain for audience seating to be staggered, based on 4 assigned arrival windows. Those having dinner will be seated earlier than those just attending the show.

Theater guests will be dismissed by section after the show, in order to reduce lines and clusters in the stairways and lobby.
