Why locals love it
Most of us associate cinemas with big crowds and sticky floors, but the Ritzy offers something a little classier. Open since 1911, the Ritzy is one of England's earliest purpose built cinemas, and the interior architecture evokes a nostalgic old school vibe from the early days of film. The lineup includes both big budget and art house features.
Why you should visit it
It's not often you can enjoy you movie with a glass of wine and some gourmet nibbles, but at the Ritzy it's encouraged, and they offer you a full bar and cafe with an extensive menu that serves everything from breakfasts to dinner. You'll also find some of the comfiest seats in cinema history, and a ceiling that looks almost as good as the screen.
There's also a live music venue upstairs. Unlike the name suggests, it's not expensive.
