About the Venue

In 1921, this intimate house opened under its original name, The Ritz. Owned by the Shuberts and designed by Herbert J. Krapp, it was intended to be a sister theater to The Ambassador Theatre.

Starting in 1939, CBS and ABC used the space to record radio and TV programs. In the 1970s it was converted back to a movie theater but was restored to legitimacy in 1983. Its current owners, Jujamcyn Theatres, spent millions restoring the theater in 1990 and has housed successful runs ever since.


There are drinks and snacks located at the bar.
