Ritz Cinemas provides facilities for those with physical disabilities or special needs. There is an accessible restroom, direct or lift access to all cinemas, designated areas for wheelchair seating, a baby change table and toddler booster seats available for all patrons. All of our cinemas are fitted with hearing loops. We regularly screen open caption sessions and sensory friendly sessions.


We pride ourselves on catering to a wide range of customers from a variety of backgrounds. We strive to provide compelling programming for people of different cultural backgrounds, first languages, sexualities, genders and ages. We also offer a broad range of food and drink options for people with vegetarian diets and various food intolerances (including gluten and lactose). We are committed to making everyone feel welcome and enjoy their time at the movies.


The Ritz has a dedicated drop off zone located within the parking lane directly outside our front entrance. It is the last space and is clearly signed to ensure it is kept free for our patrons.

Our front accessibility doors are located directly in front of this space. They are the end doors at the far right of the building. To open press the green button at the front of the building.

All Ritz Cinemas are fitted with a hearing loop for patrons with hearing aids. The loop is available on the ground floor of each cinema.

All our cinemas are fitted with a hearing loop for patrons that can also provide audio description on enabled films. Audio Description (AD) is a device that aids visually impaired patrons. It is for specific individual use and does not impact the standard cinema-going experience for non-users.
