We stopped for a few drinks and a pizza here, before seeing Faithless at Brixton Academy. This is a great venue, lots of character. We have not tried the cinema, but the pizza was great! Very fresh. Drinks were good too, and the place has a good atmosphere. Recommended!

Oh I love screen one for its Art Deco architectural styling. The staff are super friendly The beer is strong and the treats bountiful. It is expensive , a bottle of Brixton Ale, natural big bag of sweeties and cinema ticket = £16.40. Though it is s nice treat . I must confess I came half hour before the picture... More

Really cool venue, costs about as much as any other cinema going but really nice atmosphere. Go for a drink before outside. It's never really too busy when I've been and it's amazing to sit inside some of the theatres and look at the amazing detail in the architecture. If you get a screening in screen 1, sit at the...

I went here for a drink and I have never been served by staff that have to ask you three times to get your Dink right... I'm born and raised in the North of England! And the Bar Guy said I should speak properly in the English language... I think he was Spanish or around that area... I'm just Flabbergasted... More

This is a great little independent cinema and not being part of the major chains definitely has its benefits. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The attached bar is brilliant and does some half decent food. Transport links are good being just a minute or so walk from Brixton station. So there really is no excuse for not paying a... More

Picture House is a small chain of cinemas mainly based in London and the Ritzy is one of their flagship theatres. Many of their theatres are renovated turn of the century cinemas and this is one of the finest examples of that. There aren't many places this beautiful that you can watch a film on the big screen. There program... More

I love living near the Ritzy, it makes a big difference seeing a film here than in another endless, soulless maze of an Odeon. For those complaining here about high ticket prices, they're much cheaper on weeknights and off peak times. Weekend tickets are around £12, but you can see a film on a weeknight for a very decent £7.... More

I really like this cinema, I live in Kennington so it's convenient and it's a comfortable theatre to watch a movie. They do a really good student offer, I think it's £15 for membership, but with that you get 2 free cinema tickets (worth £22 alone) plus other perks. The downside is that the tickets from that point are £11... More

I love this cinema. I am so pleased that this is my local and not a vue, odeon etc. It has soul and character. The snacks are too expensive and so are the drinks so i wouldn't buy there but the cinema tickets are average at 12 pounds a head. Seats are comfy which is important!!
