RE: Ritz Presents the Take Me Out to the Ballgame…Sliding Into Spring Movie Series

Toccoa, GA, January 25, 2021, – Batter up!  Our Take Me Out to the Ballgame…Sliding Into Spring Movie Series at the Historic Ritz Theatre begins Friday, February 5th at 10:00 am and 7:00pm with the 2002 award-winner, The Rookie.

The Rookie tells the true story of a coach who discovers that it's never too late for dreams to come true. Jim Morris (Dennis Quaid) never made it out of the minor leagues before a shoulder injury ended his pitching career twelve years ago. Now a married-with-children high-school chemistry teacher and baseball coach in Texas, Jim's team makes a deal with him: if they win the district championship, Jim will try out with a major-league organization. The movie is rated G and also stars Rachel Griffiths and Angus T. Jones.

As always our movie tickets and concessions are just $1 each. Due to social distancing guidelines seating will be limited to the first 150 guests.  Contact Ritz Theatre General Manager  Tami Mayhugh at 706.244.0039 with any questions.

RE: Milkshake Mayfield show cancelled

Toccoa, GA – January 15, 2021 – Local favorite and jazz extraordinaire Milkshake Mayfield, has made the tough decision to cancel his February 18th Night at the Ritz performance due to concerns over the on-going corona virus pandemic.

Night at the Ritz, a regular event series at the Historic Ritz Theatre, is funded, in part, by a generous grant received from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Georgia Council for the Arts. Any tickets purchased for Milkshake Mayfield have been refunded. We look forward to having Milkshake at the 2021 Ida Cox Music Series and back at the theatre in 2022.

Please contact Tami Mayhugh, General Manager of the Historic Ritz Theatre, with any questions at tmayhugh@cityoftoccoa.com or 706-244-0039.
