Originally opened as the Ritz Cinema. By the summer of 1997, it had been converted into a twin screen cinema and there were proposals to add two more screens in May 1999.

In reality, three extra screens were added in an extension of the building and the now 5-screen Ritz Multiplex re-opened on 27th December 1999. Seating capacities in the screens are: 355, 200, 95, 100 and 80. Also in the building is a restaurant, a snooker hall and an amusement arcade.

The information above is not quite accurate. The twin-screen Ritz was not totally demolished; instead, three additional screens were added in a brand new second floor extension, although during the course of this work the whole building was given a full makeover and an upgrade. The new screens are 1, 2 and 3, while the original auditoriums are numbers 4 and 5. The Ritz is owned by local businessman Columba Eastwood. My photograph of the original Ritz was taken in November 1998; my photographs of the current Ritz were taken in September 2008.
