Capacity and Layout
The Ritzy is a Brixton institution, much loved for its friendly staff and anti-multiplex atmosphere. One of south London’s oldest picture palaces (it originally opened in 1911), today the Ritzy has still got a little of that grandeur. A member of the Picturehouse group of cinemas, it has five screens which are all comfortable and range from 52 - 350 seats. Screen 1 (the largest of the auditoria) has been restored to how it would have looked 100 years ago and remains many people's favourite place to watch a film - or more recently even get married!
The venue is licensed for weddings in all screens, as well as the Upstairs venue, for couples looking for something a little different on their big day.
The Upstairs bar is known best as a live music venue, but can be used for anything from wedding, receptions, birthday parties and baby showers, to screenings, workshop/classes, meetings and photoshoots.
The main, and most beautiful cinema screen in the venue - fully restored to how it looked over 100 years ago. With large stage, comfortable seats and drink holders.

Robbie DyerJanuary 26th, 2020
As a live music venue it's really not very good. Expensive drinks and the sound system is very poor. The outside seating area is nice but it still doesn't make for a good night. Might be better during the day but I can't comment on that.GOOGLE REVIEW
Orima KamaluJanuary 26th, 2020
Great cinema, main screen is like a theatre and is spacious and clean. Food and drink options are vast and the service is really friendly. Not the cheapest place but given its location and quality it's a great spot to catch a film, quiz or bite to eat.GOOGLE REVIEW
John DitchfieldJanuary 26th, 2020
I saw a film here recently it was pretty good. The cinema was dark during the film so I couldn't see what the cinema is like inside I understand that City Screen own the Ritzy now and that this led to a dispute over pay and conditions for employees. As you enter the cinema there's a golden opportunity to purchase a wide range of food stuffs: sweets, pop and crisps. How fantastic you can sit in semi-darkness eating junk food. Once I almost got into a fight in the reception. It was awful.GOOGLE REVIEW

Great cinema! picture and sounds were good quality. And here's a tip if you want to save some money, go there on Mondays. They only charge around £7 which is half of what they charge you on friday evenings, saturday and Sundays.GOOGLE REVIEW
Mark SebastianJanuary 26th, 2020
Great cinema, big screen and comfy seats. Would definitely recommend to watch films. The food and drinks selections is also quite good. There’s a bar connected to the cinema which is a nice touch and gives you something to do before or after.GOOGLE REVIEW
