This cinema was built in 1911 and is listed Grade 11.It is one of those small numbers of traditional cinemas in town centres which have survived by luck more than judgment.I enjoyed my visit and hope local people appreciate it.

I love this cinema, it's local, friendly although the popcorn is expensive the seats are comfy and there is a good selection of films on. There was a smell of sweaty feet yesterday however in screen one, perhaps a deep clean is in order?

It's my local. so would almost be rude not to go. Best deals I think come with membership, which although lapsed now I had for 3/4 years. It gets you free reduced tickets, discount on refreshments at all Picturehouse screenings and a few other places...More

Visit the Ritzy regularly to go to the cinema. Much nicer experience than your Vue/Odeon etc, and the cost isn't much different. I have a membership which reduces the cost and gives you discount at a range of places. Tried out the cafe downstairs for...More

I've made reference before that London is a unique place. People spend money. The Ritzy is in a good location and I took my teenage daughter during half term. In total spent £17 for two tickets. It's overpriced as are practically most cinemas. Cannot get...More
