Details for The Ritz Cinema

The Ritz Cinema is run by a dedicated group of volunteers. It runs a nightly showing of current Box Office films, and occasional Matinees. It is housed in what was once the Mechanics Institute, having been converted into a cinema in the 30's by a Mr Powers at the height of the silent era.

With the determination of the volunteers and the support of the local townspeople, we have managed to carry out many improvements including the installation of a new screen, better seating, a hearing aid loop and improved décor and facilities.

The Ritz is constantly looking forward and to that end we have now gone Digital. A Barco DP2K-19B Projector, together with a Dolby DSS200 Screen Server and a Dolby CP750 Audio Processor deliver full 7.1 Surround Sound via four 200 Watts per channel amplifiers over 15 speakers offering a superlative immersive sound and picture experience.

The cinema has balcony and ground floor seating offering an auditorium seating capacity of 200. The ground floor has easy wheelchair access and fully accessible toilet facilities. The new floor configurations, with the staggered seating upstairs and down, together with the staged balcony offer comfortable seats with spacious legroom and unrestricted high quality viewing.
