Before 1927  
 

The Ritz theater opened before 1927.1

The Ritz, the Strand, and the Motor-Vu Drive-In were owned by Sam I. Gillette, who leased the theaters to Chester L. Price in 1954.  Mr. Price resigned from his position as manager of the Centre Theatre in Salt Lake City in order to manage the Tooele theaters.
