The Ritzy is a Brixton institution, much loved for its friendly staff and anti-multiplex atmosphere. One of south London’s oldest picture palaces (it originally opened in 1911), today the Ritzy has still got a little of that grandeur. Its five screens are all comfortable and reasonably sized, while the programme strikes the perfect balance between major blockbusters and independent films, plus late-night shows and classics. There are also two bars, one offering a view across Windrush Square and serving slap-up café food, the other tucked upstairs inside the cinema and playing host to an array of club nights and stand-up shows.

- So here it is, the triumphant finale to ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise, and time for plucky heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to march proudly into the Capitol, aim her trusty arrow and loose it straight into the heart of that dastardly v...Read more
- Well, this certainly feels like a full stop. Daniel Craig has been slippery and circumspect when asked if ‘Spectre’ will be his final outing as James Bond. From both the tone and content of ‘Spectre’, we’d guess this could be his swansong: this is...Read more
- Forget about the hipster-bearded image of Brooklyn. Irish director John Crowley’s big-hearted adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s 2009 novel, an immigrant story set in 1952, goes back to the New York neighbourhood’s blue-collar past. But ‘Brooklyn’ is no ...Read more
- Steve Jobs the man was an astonishingly successful genius. He was also a megalomaniac who never let anything so wimpy as other people’s feelings stand in his way. ‘Steve Jobs’ the film also suffers a little from split personality. Screenwriter Aar...Read more
