Description

The Dr. Phillips Theater, located at 23-29 South Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida, in 2002. In 1916, Dr. P. Phillips hired Murray S. King to design his theater on the northeast corner of Orange Avenue and Pine Street. In July of 1917, Dr. Phillips leased the theater to Braxton Beacham Sr. In 1923, the building was leased to the United Stores Corporation. The theater was renamed the Ritz Theatre in 1929 and a portion of the building was occupied by Butler's Shoes. In 1934, Dr. Phillips leased the site to the W.T. Grant Store, which operated in that location until it filed for bankruptcy in 1975.
