Ritz Theater, 1939, Toccoa

Now known as the Schaefer Center, the old Ritz Theatre operated from 1939 until 1985.

I made this series of photographs for the Fox Theatre Institute in 2011 and 2012 when restoration was in progress.

The community was very involved in the restoration and provided local funding to complete the work.

A replacement of the old marquee on the front of the structure was done after the interior was renovated.

I truly enjoyed my visit with the Fox folks, and the people of Toccoa were very welcoming.
