Ritz Cinemas

Let's Take This Outside

Now re-opened, in a laneway behind Ritz is our very special Laneway Cinema, screening films on select nights from sundown.  

Welcome to the Urban Jungle

Complete with comfortable director's chair seating, a dedicated Ritz Laneway snack bar, blankets available to borrow and headsets for audio, Ritz Laneway Cinema has got everything you need for a fun, unique and exciting visit to the movies.

Adding to the fun of your visit, there may be the sounds of rubbish runs and cats meowing, the blinding light of Uber drivers' headlights flashing into the space, the occasional person hanging their washing out in courtyards nearby and a distinct 'back laneway' kind of smell lingering in the air. How very New York! 


You're welcome to take alcoholic drinks purchased from Ritz with you outside to Ritz Laneway. Drinks may be purchased from the inside bars and taken outside, or purchased directly from the dedicated Laneway bar.


Sessions may be changed or cancelled due to inclement weather. For updates on your session, please get in touch with us HERE

If wet weather prevails and the session is cancelled, you will be able to attend an indoor session or have your tickets swapped to another Ritz Laneway session. There are no refunds for Ritz Laneway tickets.


Tickets to Ritz Laneway are according to regular Ritz pricing, with a $2 surcharge. Please note that discount day pricing (Student Monday and Cheap Tuesday) do not apply to Ritz Laneway sessions. Ritz members can enjoy Ritz Laneway films for just $12, so if you aren't a Ritz Royalty member yet, you can sign up here.
