Of the three Landmark Ritz theaters in Old City, the Ritz at the Bourse is the outlier. Its five screens are all underground, but the idea is the same as its brethren: It’s an art-house cinema with an exciting range of indie, foreign and documentary selections, it has better-than-average snacks (including a fine buttered popcorn, reasonably good coffee and even vegan cookies) and solid film curation, including a popular midnight series (think cult favorites such as The Room and The Rocky Horror Picture Show). It’s located next to a parking garage (validation available), so you can drive with impunity.

    A mercurial and explosive film, Blindspotting nimbly parses conflicts about race, rent, incarceration and gentrification. The film is set in bustling and bristling Oakland—a landscape that churns with spoken word as well as tensions between long...
