The Ritzy in Brixton is one of the UK's largest specialist cinemas. Run by the Picturehouse group, it shows a mix of arthouse, mainstream and world movies on its five screens. Built in 1910, the Ritzy retains its unique proscenium arch, as well as a few stray cherubs, making it one of the most complete examples of London's early cinemas.

The Ritzy is by far my favourite cinema in London which not only provides a bar, other entertainment upstairs such as board games and music but also their marvelous food. It is a world away from the booming commercial soulless cinemas that lurk on the high-streets of England, that tout brands and advertising at every step.
The Cinema is in an old school screen room/ theater which has several...more
