The Ritz Theatre, which was re-opened here three weeks ago by Messrs. J. D. Frizell and Alvin Miller of Jacksonville, discontinued business again following the evening show Saturday. The building and equipment, which the management held under lease, was turned back to its owner, Mr. M. T. Dodd, last week.
It is understood that other parties are interested in securing the building and equipment to open the house again, but as yet, no definite statement has been made.
