The Ritz East theatre was opened by Ritz Theatres founder Ramon L. Posel in 1999. Ownership transferred to Landmark Theatres in March 2007. The theatre is going strong, never wavering from its founder's original mission to give Philadelphia residents an opportunity to see the best in independent, foreign, and documentary film.
