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.

    Has there ever been a less appealing action hero than Ethan Hunt? Five ‘Mission: Impossible’ movies in and he still feels like a blank slate, a robot with Tom Cruise’s empty grin and a vocabulary ripped straight from the Bumper Book of Pithy Quips...
