We saw a matinee of 'Get Out' on a Monday afternoon (in March 2017). We paid £7 each. The rest of the week its approx. £10.50 BUT the seats are AMAZINGLY comfortable and WIDE. We absolutely loved it. No its not the cheapest but for...More

Dropped in for lunch with a friend. The staff (on the whole) are distracted, inattentive, lacking in almost any sense of 'service', unsmiling, unwelcoming and seemingly unhappy in their roles.

I've made reference before that London is a unique place. People spend money. The Ritzy is in a good location and I took my teenage daughter during half term. In total spent £17 for two tickets. It's overpriced as are practically most cinemas. Cannot get...More

I live in Brixton, so went to the Ritzy for a birthday lunch with my sister. We sat outside because the weather was quite pleasant, however the Pizza's we had were completely tasteless, like eating cardboard. We did complain and were offered a free dessert,...More

Love this cinema, has a cool independent vibe even though it's a chain. Staff are always friendly and educated about the films they have. Also great popcorn! The bar is great too.
