This is a great cinema. It's run by volunteers. The seats are very comfortable and the sight lines are good.

“A Treasure!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

In this day and age of the Multiplex and many cinemas closing the Ritz is testament to the stubborness and dedication of a group of volunteers who over the year's have given their time and energy to raise funds and keep this gem alive and well!!!!
It is also reasonably priced!!!
