Handy from the 2nd Street metro but otherwise oddly tucked away in a square next to a parking station, this cinema has friendly staff and good popcorn. The lack of designated seating may come as a surprise to travellers from other parts of the world,...More

We live in a cinema desert. As a result we occasionally pay a visit to the city and to the Ritz where we can see the shows that often do not make it to smaller markets. The theater is clean with comfortable seats.

Smaller venue. Comfy seats. Clean. With a variety of interesting movies. Lots if good food in neighborhood day or evening. Park next door or take public transportation.

One of the few places in Philadelphia that show Independent and art films. It's a treasure in concept. In reality, films aside, theaters need to be refurbished and staff needs to care about its patrons. Last year they had a terrific globe Theater film series,...More
