Ritz Theatre
Talladega, AL
The Historic Ritz Theatre, circa 1910, was built as part of a chain of movie houses in the city of Talladega, Alabama. The current façade, dating from 1936, was designed in the Art Deco style using a unique vitrolite glass. The glass restoration in 1998 marked the first phase of a long-term vision to convert the Ritz into a regional performing arts center and public event facility. In Phase II, the Ritz Theatre will be reconfigured as a 600 to 650 seat performance space hosting regional productions for short runs as well as productions by local dance, theatre and music groups. The theatre will also serve as an assembly space for small conferences and business meetings. RJHA’s plans include the restoration of the main hall and upgrading the theatrical rigging and lighting systems, while simultaneously replacing the air conditioning and electrical systems. To complement and expand the capacity of the current theatre, several adjacent buildings have been acquired and will house additional elements to the venue, such as an extended lobby, larger dressing rooms and other backstage facilities. A fully independent Studio Theatre, Educational Center and other multifunctional spaces will also be part of the addition.
