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.

I rarely rate cinemas, but this one is definitely worth visiting.
Just a stone's throw away from Brixton underground station, the Ritzy Picturehouse is a stylish theatre that allows you to drink in the cinema! They're quite relaxed about food/drink, and many people even brought in snacks from the nearby Sainsbury's. The seats are very comfortable and the screen was huge.
