Right near Brixton Village and street market, we went for a movie to watch Dr. Strange after having yummy lunch at The Joint and Mama Lan. Love the concession food and snack variety here and ice cream cup choices were awesome. Cinema was clean and comfortable. Definitely recommend to come with family and friends.

Went there with bunch of friends, without fully realising that it is a cinema, bar and restaruant in one. Seats in the cinema are comfortable, bar is good and food in the restaurant nice. Customer service friendly and helpfull.

My husband and I met a friend here for drinks. We didn't realise it was a cinema until we got inside. It was very neat and cosy and full to the brim! But the noise wasn't overbearing as it can sometimes be in intimate spaces like that. We talked comfortably without having to shout. We ordered hot drinks which were... More

Compared to Odeon or Cineworld , would wish for the Ritzy to be less expensive. I like the restaurant buzz, but the pricing and the slow service keeps me going some extra miles to the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square.

I went to The Ritzy to watch a film last night. It was super easy to book & choose seats before arrival online. The staff were all super friendly & helpful. It was great to have a drink outside in the bar area first. We saw a film in screen 1. It is a beautifully decorated screen room with very... More

Great place for anyone looking to avoid the usual mainstream style of Vue & Odeon. Great film choices, nice upstairs bar for pre / post drinks, and guests are treated like adults with beer & wine allowed in the screens. Snacks are pricey, screens are small, but overall a good experience.

Staff here are welcoming, helpful and friendly. There are a range of screen sizes, to suit the wide variety of films shown here. The bar cafe is always busy but serve snacks, meals and drinks at reasonable prices. Popcorn, sweets and crisps as always in cinemas are expensive.

Have visited this gorgeous little cinema so many times over the last couple of years. I must sort out a membership. It's actually such a pleasure to come here after work. The most comfortable seats and unintrusive sound. I have abandoned most other cinemas as of late - uncomfortable seats & I get back ache after a while & the... More

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!
