Some people dream of having a fairy-tale wedding, but why stop there when you can have a Hollywood one?

The Ritzy roll out the red carpet and welcome the happy couple, and their guests, into this beautiful Grade II-listed cinema, which has been at the heart of vibrant Brixton since 1911.

The 350-seat auditorium, with its dazzling Edwardian plasterwork, has, for the last 100 years, been a sanctuary to some of the most romantic moments in cinema history. It is now ready to host your own magic moment, and bring your memories as a couple to life on the silver screen.

Upstairs at the Ritzy is the perfect venue to host a reception to remember. It has a well-stocked bar, a balcony with a spectacular view over Windrush square, and is fully equipped to host a DJ or live band for your first dance.
