Storyline

Ed Blake is a balding middle-aged man who decides to buy an old movie theater, called The Ritz, to shape it up into a retro 1950s music hangout. With the aid of his loyal girlfriend Nancy, his foreman Bruno, and his assistant Marcus, Ed is able to assemble a construction team to plan to be on time for the grand re-opening. But unknown to everyone, a large and disfigured man lives in the passageways of the old theater since the 1950's occasionally popping out to murder an occasional wino or intruder that happens upon his domain.

A total waste of 89 minutes.
31 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Phantom of the Ritz is not one of the best movies that I have ever seen. The movie features very weak acting, a bad storyline with hardly any action, and under-developed characters. The phantom kills people near the theater that he haunts because he is upset with his brother for participating in drag races, in which the phantom was created and his brother was killed. Just as the phantom should never have been in the race, so it should have been that I never watched this movie. What a waste!
