… almost. Let's get that 'booking' problem out of the way first. The system is appalling. We're members and get advance notice of films coming up, but to get any benefit from that means dialling constantly for two to three days. No web bookings, no emailing - and you can bring the problem up with the management on every social... More

we have been members since just after the ritz opened and agree wholeheartedly with all the great comments expressed by other visitors. Sadly, we have not been able to get through on the phone to book since last summer and still have two of our free tickets to use! We live some miles away and can't get in to queue.... More

This is a comfortable venue with old fashioned courtesy and modern technology! The sound systm is excellent, the programme up to date and the seating well spaced. It has had quite an effect on the town - eateries now stay open to cater for cinema goers, which is great. The only down side, inevitable because of the age of the... More

Finally visited this lovely cinema last night following many recommendations by friends and we were not dissappointed! We were warmly greeted by the extremely pleasant staff, we passed over our £40 and became members for the year. This allowed us four free tickets and £1 off the ticket price each time we go. Effectively £35 worth of free tickets and... More

We were members when it started and have rejoined as members having recently moved back to Belper after 5 years overseas. The Ritz is fantastic in every way and makes us smile every time we visit. The team are hardworking and very helpful and friendly. The absolute opposite of every multiplex and brilliant because of it. Amanda and team deserve... More

As members you do get first notice of what movies are showing and other perks too at this wonderful ,clean comfortable cinema in Belper.But there is a downside to this wonderful night out and that's trying to get your tickets. We gave up phoning and now wait for an hour in a que to get our tickets. Sometimes we have... More

£6.75 for a ticket, £2.50 fur a bottle of Peroni, and £2.50 for a large popcorn - I reckon that's about half the price you'd pay at a Multiplex...and you get TWICE the experience! Lovely plush curtains and carpets, the most comfortable seats I've ever found at a cinema, staff who are genuinely helpful, attentive and courteous. Booking is recommended... More

I live locally and love the Ritz but seldom go because I cannot get down there to book tickets in person - however it is great to have booked seats and to be able to have tea and cakes, or a glass of wine and watch films that are not on the usual multiplexes

Sadly, I have to fully agree with Mallard22's comments (see below) re: the Ritz booking system. We have been members almost since it opened and used to go frequently. But it has become a victim of it's own success. It's a lovely cinema and has a superb screen, seating, toilets, food, drink and atmosphere. But it's a fight to get... More
