The Ritz is truly a special place where history’s missing chapters are being restored, where talent is nurtured, and creativity is celebrated. Whether visiting the museum, attending a concert, viewing a film or listening to a lecture, the Ritz has a unique energy that leaves you with a special feeling.
The Ritz Theatre and Museum features an intimate 400-seat theatre with a state-of-the-art sound system, lighting and a performance stage (30’ x 40’). The lobby of the Ritz Theatre is a favorite location for many Jacksonville private events, such as weddings, anniversaries and business meetings. It can comfortably host up to 150 people for a banquet-style event or up to 500 for a cocktail hour. New dance floors for the ultimate dance party! Many community events are hosted at this popular downtown Jacksonville venue throughout the year.
The facility is wheelchair accessible and allows for both onsite and offsite catering. There is also plenty of free parking at the venue and nearby. For those seeking a venue rental that is intimate and affordable, the Ritz Theatre and Museum should be at the top of their list.
