Newburgh, NY 12550
The theater has continued to put on shows in the lobby while raising money to restore the main theater. In 2009, Congressman Maurice Hinchey secured $400,000 for restoration, and State Senator William Larkin snared another $250,000. In 2010, the Ritz received $200,000 in funding from a state urban initiatives program. That all goes toward the $12 million capital campaign. The theater will need every penny.
