With a construction cost of $7 million, Ritz 12 opened as a part of a large shopping strip in Voorhees, New Jersey. The theater featured a 5000-square foot lobby that offered a lounge and a concession area. The walls of the cinema's hallways featured portraits of many renowned filmmakers. Equipped with digital surround sound systems, all the auditoriums had luxury seats. The two largest auditoriums featured huge 40-foot wide screens.

After the addition of four more auditoriums, the theater’s name was changed to Ritz 16. In 2007, Ritz 16 was sold to the National Amusements and operated by the company’s Showcase division.
