Drama company Theater Latté Da has bought the Ritz Theater, a onetime movie house in Northeast Minneapolis.

The Star Tribune reports on the deal for the theater at 345 13th Ave. NE, which had been owned by the Ritz Foundation. The building dates back decades, beginning as a movie theater before a conversion for drama in the 1970s. Terms of the sale weren't disclosed.

Theater Latté Da has been without a permanent home since 2006, though it's been gradually expanding its presence at the Ritz. The group moved administrative offices there in 2014 and began producing plays there for the past year.
