Ritz Cinemas COVID-19 Updates →


We couldn't be more excited to announce that we'll be re-opening our doors on Wednesday 1 July! We can't wait to warmly welcome you to Ritz once again.

Your safety is of the utmost importance to us, so we'll be implementing a number of measures to ensure you're safe and comfortable during your visit to Ritz. These include and are not limited to:

  • spaced seating (those in the same household can sit together)
  • hand sanitiser stations in the foyer
  • card payments only 
  • capped capacity to ensure sufficient social distancing
  • staggered session start times and longer turnover between sessions
  • heightened cleaning regimes.

Sessions are unallocated so that customers can choose a seat a safe distance away from other moviegoers. Please ensure you are seated at least 1.5m away from other patrons not in your group.

Thanks once again for your patience, understanding and unwavering support throughout our closure due to the COVID-19 lockdowns. Our hearts were warmed by all the messages of goodwill from our patrons. Your palpable passion for film and cinema will hold us in good stead into the future.

We'll see you again very soon.

The Tamir family and Ritz Cinemas team.
