Built by and operated by Associated British Cinemas (ABC) for all its life, the Ritz Cinema opened on 21st December 1936 (just three months after the nearby Odeon Theatre opened). The opening programme was Joe E. Brown in “Sons o' Guns” and Lewis Stone in “Don’t Turn ‘em Loose”.
This large cinema, was built on a difficult sloping site on the side of the very steep Muswell Hill. A car park was provided at the rear. ABC’s in-house architect William R. Glen designed yet another of his typical Art Deco styled cinemas which had seating in stalls and circle.
The Ritz was a popular cinema for many years and was re-branded ABC in 1962. It closed on 28th January 1978 with Robby Benson in “One on One” and Richard Pryor in “Greased Lightning”. The building was immediately demolished and an office block was built on the site.
