History of the Ritz now online!

We are starting a grand search to unearth as much information about the legendary Ritz Theater, our new home. We've started a Wikipedia page with our first pass of general information. We'll be updating it regularly as we unearth more data. If anyone else has photos, stories or history, please add to the Wiki, or send us the information directly.

We've also started up a Flickr Photoset for the Ritz. Currently we have a couple of photos of the Ritz it it's original 1/2 width configuration as well as an assortment of early ads for the Ritz and other vintage Austin cinemas.

We'll also be posting up images and updates about the "Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz" renovation project as they develop.
