The Ritzy Cinema, Brixton, South London

A charming Edwardian building on the outside and a modern multiplex cinema on the inside, the Ritzy has five small auditoria, most of the latest films and a couple of decent bars. Family tickets for a movie can cost as little as £4.50 per head, but you may end up spending as much again on snacks and drinks. A bag of wine gums, for example, costs a hefty £2. Still, the Ritzy is a good local cinema that manages to mix lightweight Hollywood blockbusters with heavyweight film festival fodder. 7/10
