Despite fears that making the Ritzy a multiplex would kill its cool style and community feeling (four new screens were added to this 1911 building in the late ‘90s, making it London’s biggest independent cinema), this is still one of London’s favourites, screening a good mix of mainstream and indie films. The Ritzy is an off–West End screen during the Times BFI London Film Festival, and alternative gigs are often held inside the large original auditorium. The funky bar-cafe upstairs is a gathering spot for arty locals.
