This cosy, volunteer-run cinema shows all the best films quite soon after release. The staff are friendly, the prices are good and the seats and facilities are very comfortable. I would always choose the Ritz over a big chain cinema.

Loved this cinema. Reminded me so much of fond memories growing up as a child. .The look, smell, atmosphere, its just unbeatable. So much more a cinema experience than a boring standard multiplex. Great friendly staff that do an amazing job. I will be returning

I really love this place, I think I probably go at least twice a month. The service provided by the volunteers is always fabulous, the price is great and the actual theatre is comfortable with good sound quality.
