    It's an older crowd here but perfect for a Woody Allen movie!

    Great place to catch an indie film or documentary. Much cheaper than any of the Regal/United Artists theaters. Close to some cute restaurants (Zahav, Positano Coast). Make sure to park in the garage.

    Please go see Short Term 12 while you have a chance. Fantastic, beautiful movie.

    Possible the nastiest bathroom at a "Movie House" ever. Damn.

    Great for tall people. The seating provides the most legroom of any theater I've visited.

    If you love indie films, this is the place to see them. A short walk from just about anywhere in Old City, Society Hill, South Street and Penn's Landing.

    All shows before 6 p.m. Monday thru Friday (and all day Wednesday) are $6.50. Awesome price to view some fantastic films!

    One of the best theaters to visit if you are into independent films and visiting PA!!

    Christopher Bonk · March 22, 2012
  • Jessica P.

    This place doesn't have that typical gross movie theater smell, and the seats recline a little which is nice.

    Jessica Philo · January 29, 2012
  • Glen G.

    Remember there are three Ritz movie houses in Philly, all within walking distance. Independent films only!

    Drop by and see a movie here. You will likely feel smarter and more cultured by the time you leave.

    Get a steak from the snackbar and eat it off one of the toiletseats in the restroom.
