ritz 5 philadelphia

This flagship Ritz theater is home to the widest range of the more popular indie, foreign-language and documentary films out at any given moment. Common to the other two Ritzes in Old City, a movie day here grants you a selection of decent treats and comfy seats—plus it’s just down the hill from one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia: Zahav. Plan the timing of your movie just right to stop by for hummus or one of the best happy hours in Philadelphia.
