The Ritz Cinema opened on 10th September 1938 with Sabu in "Elephant Boy". It was a suburban ‘super’ cinema the 678 seats were all on one level. There were panels on the side walls of the auditorium which contained scenic murals. It was built for independent operator Victor E. Harrison and was independently operated throughout its cinematic life.

The Ritz Cinema closed on 10th July 1960 with Ted Ray in "Please Turn Over". The building lay unused for a while and in 1961, it became a motor tyre and exhaust centre. This use ended in 2006, and in 2007, the building was demolished for housing to be built on the site.
