The building remains “for sale”, no asking price published, just “offers invited for the freehold” in May 2013. The building still looks in very good repair.

The Ritz has just been sold for 1 million pounds to an as yet unknown buyer. The Warrington Guardian reported that WB Council put in a bid for 500,000 which was the ‘guide’ price!, in order to safeguard the building for proposed canalside devlopment- conversion to a theatre?– they have certainly been going on about it in this town for long enough

Hi, I work with a girl who has a second job doing bar work at Halo, and I’m pretty sure from the way she describes the place now that the old cinemas upstairs are used for individual rooms for different music and DJ’s. Shame.
