The Ritz Theatre recently celebrated 85 years in Thomaston.  Like so many others, the theatre is now struggling to fund the conversion to digital projection.  A “Save the Ritz” campaign has been started by the Upson County Concerned Citizens (UC3), who are trying to raise the $70,000 needed to purchase the new projector. If they succeed, the non-profit group will own the projector and then lease it back to theater. Several fundraisers have been held already, with more in the works, but not nearly enough money has been raised.
