Excellent Viewing

This lovely cinema is run by enthusiastic volunteers who are very friendly and welcoming. The cinema is a beautiful place to visit with a very good screen and lower and upper level seating. Many locals are frequest visitors and the atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. We saw Downton Abbey film and will certainly visit again in future when in the Thirsk area.

Terrible sound system
Nov 2019 • Couples
OK, so this is a volunteer run cinema, I get that. So I’m not expecting city centre standards. However despite advertising Dolby Surround Sound on their website, there was no sound whatsoever coming out of the loudspeakers in the circle at last weeks showing of “Judy”. The soundtrack to the film was played only in the lower auditorium which meant that in the circle the film dialogue was quiet and very indistinct. Not quite bad enough to make us give up on the film, but only just. So it’ll be back to York City Screen in future for us.

Uniquely fantastic.

An extremely enjoyable family trip to The Ritz today. I've wanted to visit for a look time, but living in Redcar this was our first chance. Such a fantastic little cinema, and truly unique in today's world of multiplexes. Like a trip back in time. Great seating, essentially those up high. Very friendly volunteer staff. Great screen and sound too. Best of all was when the lady come round with an ice cream tray half way through the movie, which was a magic touch. I can not recommend this cinema highly enough. Well done.

Gem of a cinema that we are lucky to have

This cosy, volunteer-run cinema shows all the best films quite soon after release. The staff are friendly, the prices are good and the seats and facilities are very comfortable. I would always choose the Ritz over a big chain cinema.

Must visit.

What a great little cinema.

We found everything to be clean and tidy, and the (volunteer) staff were all very friendly.

The seats were very comfy and even I had plenty of legroom (I’m 6’7”).

I wish there were more cinemas like this instead of big multinational corporate places that charge £6 for a bag of minstrels (Ritz charged £2).

A must visit if you’re in the area.
