REVIEWS OF Landmark's Ritz Five IN Delaware

Asha Advani

Great theater. Small. Only issue is parking. Hard to find street parking.

Fran Beam

Nice place to watch movies

Rhoshanna Barnes

I loved the selection of movies, comfortable seats and nice staff.

William Jantsch

This is a fine neighborhood movie theater that shows films that are sometimes a bit quirky or whimsical, as opposed to the standard blockbusters seen in bigger theaters. The seats are getting long in the tooth, but sight lines to the screen are good, and the sound system is excellent.

Jeff Laney

Great place to see independent film.

Penni Gould

Just average movie theater with not so friendly staff. Very robotic approach to customer service. Popcorn served in bags instead of containers which was awkward. However, the popcorn was tasty and fresh.

Asheli Cox

We love this theatre. It offers many movie options that aren't playing in the larger more commercial theatres. My husband brought me here on one of our first dates and it remains one of our traditions!!

Dylan DeGaetano

Solid art house theater, will definitely go back.

Cynthia Valoren

Such a nice little indie theater!

B-Trone Skapown

Ticket prices are reasonably priced, nothing fancy but still very enjoyable for indie films and comedies. If you are seeing a big production movie, you may want to spend a little extra for a stadium style theater with a larger screen

Lou

All three Ritz theaters in the area are great. Clean, nice sized screens, great concessions (Italian sodas), and best of all: quiet audiences.

Liam McKenna

I saw "The Post" here. It's a great theater. It has an older vibe to it due to it's smallness. I can have an appreciation for that. The movie selection is often great. The prices are average. It can get a bit crammed. Overall, though, I find this a very nice theater in a great location.

maria Duran

Excellent always best films

Vic Grimes

Affordable theater for Indie Films.

Michael Jackson

Excellent condition, excellent movie and theatre was as anticipated. If only parking was better.

A I

love the Ritz theaters. great ticket prices!

Wayne Morra

Always a superb selection of foreign and indie films. Excellent seats. Better selection of theater food than most movie outlets. Generally parking nearby, but (and this is important) don't be late with your meter, the Philadelphia Parking Authority is vicious.

Alberta Mapp

Saw a pre screening of Late Night. Love this old theatre

Brad Robinson

Great staff. Always friendly.

Kasando Bosco

Favorite place to see movies in Philadelphia! Great selection of independent films and cozy theaters. Can’t beat the ritz!

Daniel Kist

Good place to go wirh a date

Stephen Lear

This is the kind of place that gives Philadelphia its magic. There are only four screens here. The Ritz Five picks up the "weird" things you want to go see. Re-releases, indie, international, cult films, all show up here. The other strong point of the Ritz Five are the people who go there. You're basically guaranteed to be watching a movie with people who care as much as you do. No children screaming. No people talking during the movie. It's a wonderful experience that makes "going to the movies" a worthwhile experience. A big "thank you" to the staff who make the Ritz Five such a wonderful place.

Peter Bond

I love going to the movies, and I love independent movies. The Ritz is one of my favorite places to go, their staff is nice and they always have a good selection. When you go please try to buy some concessions or something, it's always good to support your local theater. I usually just buy a coffee, somebody has to keep them in business.

Mary Righter

Great Independet Movie Theater!

Justin Nachod

Great theater, easily accessible by septa or by walking/driving/ Uber Some amenities you may be used to at movie theaters like buying tickets online / reserved seats / full alcohol bar are not available here as in other area theaters like the AMC North Broad, but this is only a minor issue, if at all. Ticket and food/drink prices are very fair.

matthew hopkins

Nice theater. If love cinema, you already know this place.

Jennifer Finan

Fun theater that shows excellent independent films. Highly recommend getting a tea with your movie!

Hidden colors 5 was dope #HC5 #Hiddencolors5

Mari Hatton-Haynes

Nice, comfortable seats. Would of gave 5 stars but coffee price too muchb not a variety of food/snacks

Danielle Harrison

Great selection of movies! Free popcorn and soda refills! Yummy ice cream sandwiches!

Ðueý FṀ

Amazing Variety of New Run Independent Movies !

Sarah Carson

Nice theater with a good variety of hot teas available at the concession stand.

Randall Perez

The Ritz V is a nice indie theater. Shows movies other theatres don't and has higher end snacks. On the price side and the auditoriums themselves could use an upgrade. But overall it's a great theater.

Ken Goldberg

I was happy to find easy parking at their official parking lot. They have great artistic movies of course.

Susan Parker

So cozy I fell asleep. $11 nap.

Donald Wilson

Nice theater a little old fashion but great sounds

Christopher Ross

Unfortunately, this theater has seen better days. The area, is nice. But the inside is tired, worn out, and really could use some attention. They have a decent snack stand, and it is a reasonable walk from a decent part of town., but the seats are a mess, the floors are dirty, the sound is pretty rough. Honestly, unless they were playing a specific movie that I had to see right then and there, I go to another theater. It is rather sad, I know there is history in this theater The fact is, these kind of small theaters just don't get the traffic the other larger ones do. And they're starting to suffer..

Ash Marie F

I went here to see Beautiful Boy on November 9th 2018. Two tickets were $20.50 for the 5:10 show. Refreshments were pricey, but if you buy large, you can get free refills. Nice atmosphere, however a mouse was in my movie theater before the movie started, so I was feeling uneasy to sit there for two hours.

Timaree Schmit

Appreciate this place and its offerings

Kelsey Smith

This is my favorite movie theater in Philly. They show great, thought provoking independent movies. There's always a good variety of films. The concession stand includes baked goods and tea /coffee. The theaters have variable temperatures, some very cold and others more mild.

Val Jarvis

This is one of my favorite places to see a movie. I like that they also show foreign language films.

Jesse Quevedo

Great theatre, small but it wasnt as busy as your regular AMC type. The seats are very comfy and recline though they are no lazy boy sofa chairs still comfy regardless. Small consession stand offering swift and precise service. Not many young people as most movies seem to be for a mature older crowd. The theatre screen itself was amazing quality not your ordinary 2d i bet they have some quality projectors in which i didnt bother asking about details. All in all very quiet, fast service, clean, comfy seating, and great customer service. Good for a quick movie getaway or even a date.

Spiffy Corp.

A unique staff! Always very friendly

Rose Spivey

Great atmosphere, great popcorn

Barbara Marshall

I loved the screening of Long Shot.

Jess Barron

This is a great theater. They show a lot of independent movies, which is nice. Super clean and they have comfy seats. The concession stand is good with lots of options.

Abbi Warren

Always fun to catch an independent film here. Love the old-school feel.

Roy North

The great thing about the Ritz theatres (there are three) is that they are the only theatres in Philly that show limited-run movies. And the seats at the Ritz V are much better than the seats at the Ritz Bourse, which are really old and need replacing.

George Dick

Nice old school movie theater. The selection of smaller films there is pretty good

pier5men

Great theaters with the best selection of serious films. Intimate sized theaters in a multi-plex compound. It isn't a roudy kids type center...so don't expect to see Batman type movies here...thank goodness!

Sherdina Abron

They have the best popcorn because they use real butter. They show great movies and screenings. The personnel are very friendly and helpful

According to Dana

Came to see a matinee showing of "Lady Bird" on Christmas Day and given the high volume of people in the theater lobby waiting to get tickets, I was very impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of the staff. Tickets are generally around $10, though they do offer a $8 matinee special during the week. I was also satisfied with the quality of the screening room itself--clean seats, clean floors, good view of the screen, top-notch movie quality, and overall no complaints. I would definitely come back for another movie, even though I only go to movie theaters when there's something I REALLY want to see.

MONGO Cleves Mefiance

A cool place to go

Diane Clearwater

Great in town movie theater, old school and cozy. Excellent popcorn!

Emma Brown

The popcorn man was vv good at buttering the popcorn. It was layered.

Jim McLaughlin

ALWAYS a good movie playing. Best popcorn and snacks! I've been going to the Ritz theaters for years. They've been the gold standard of top quality film theater and transformed the entire Delaware Valley as they established that Philly cared for great films. When they came to town, there weren't the Bryn Mawr or Jenkintown historic restorations. We have them and others because of the Ritz theaters.

Kevin Pettit

Great indie selection in rotation all the time.

Brenda Hill

beautiful time

Maham Quraishi

Great small theater showing independent films! Doesn't have the updated seats or sound of the bigger theaters, so don't go in expecting that. They have 5 films showing at a time for a reasonable price (a little more than $10). Timings are limited so check before you go. Would highly recommend seeing a film here if you can, they show a lot of hidden gems!

Christopher Washington

A great place to visit for a quick movie. Good food prices as well. Would definitely go back, just not in the greatest shape

Blue Sakirana

Best place to watch a movie. Ever. Not even gonna explain why. Just is.

Tay Burch

Great movies, unique movie snacks. Love that they have flavored powders for popcorn. Great lounge area. Unfriendly staff but not a huge deal.

Nick Hastain

One of my favorite movie theaters. The selection is always wonderful and provides movies that other more popular theaters do not show. I enjoy the old fashioned feel of the place. This theater also offers student discounts.

Steve Nikazy

Great place for movies out of the mainstream. Excellent nearby restaurants.

Steven Powell

Good place to get out of the heat and see a movie.

Laura N

Plays the movies that people should watch. Service is good. Theaters are kept clean.

Norman Weiner

Old and dated, but the only theater in Philly you can see quality independent content.

Fred Alluso

Came here for a presentation event and couldn’t be happier with the staff and overall experience.

William Keyser

Semi private event. Well hosted. No trailers.

Melokai M

Great art house movie theatre. It has movies you won't see in a main stream theatre and it has it holds good main stream movies longer than other theatres. You can buy much more sophisticated snacks, coffee and tea. The only downside is that street parking is limited to 3 hours in the area, so if you are going to eat before or after, you'll need to park in a lot.

Tal Si

Nice little old fashioned theater

Marjorie Solomon

Cozy, small neighborhood movie theater. Needs a bit of an update (seats) but shows quality movies and is convenient.

Khayree Copeland

Great , clean, courteous and always quiet - great 2 hr getaway from.......

Stevie Bee

Very intimate movie theater! Clean bathrooms too.

dayve traynor

Cosy little spot showing smaller, independent films. In case of Disney fatigue.

Jessica Maupin

Great little theater! Love that it plays more of the smaller name Indy films.

Donna DeLoach

Small but very nice theater. Handicap accessible.

Brandon Wolfeld

Always love a landmark theater. Excellent selection of movies including arthouse and documentary. Didn't have the popcorn, but the prices seemed pretty reasonable. Best of all, I came on a Wednesday and apparently my ticket was half price so I only paid $7.50 to see a movie (not sure if this is a regular deal at this theater, but I'll find out!).

Michael Hyman

Facility was nice but the staff was very rude

Marcia Williams

Nice old school Landmark movie venue.

Elisa Maria

Love this quaint theatre in the historical district if Philadelphia. My favorite.

David Lovato

Great place to watch indie movies. A little pricey for tickets but par for the course for seeing a movie in the city.

Natalie Freedman

Love going here, they show a lot of artsy movies not in most theatres. Great service and great popcorn. Recently went to see Your Name, it was an excellent experience!

Lola Heffernan

I really like this theater - it's really cute and perfectly sized for my taste. It's near lots of restaurants as well.

Crystal Watson-Adams

The ritz theater's are a life saver for any cinephile

Nicholas Capoferri

Art house films presented in the best cinemas in Philly. The only way to watch.

Jeremy Jameson

Small but pleasant movie theater in the heart of the city. Went to a free advance screening with daughter. We sat close to the front of the viewing room. Seats were about average comfort (firm yet soft, but had to slouch considerably to rest my head on the back). Sound and picture quality were perfectly acceptable for a standard format film. Didn't get rushed out at the end while watching through the credits (I do that; I'm weird). Bathrooms were easy to find and in good, clean form.

Mike Hoover

Great place to catch a good indie flick!

Jennifer Stock

Perfect arthouse cinema.

David Katz

great spot to catch a movie (if you are into art-house films)

Ronni Barton

Comfortable and generally quiet. And the Ritz theaters book the most "grownup" movies of any theater around.

wil smith

Nice and clean

ty becote

First time there and it was the only one playing Greta ,that move was crazy

Jody Lurie

Always good for indy films

Dan Decker

A trip back in time before the 24 theaters of today. Roomy theaters in a great downtown Philly location.

Alice de Stefano

I love everything about the Ritz theaters!

Carole

Great theatre! Affordable ticket prices.

Renee Ryan

The movie experience is great but only one bathroom for that many people? Otherwise five stars!

mary johnson

Great venue after all those years away. Thanks for the George Harrison birthday remembrance. Hari bol.

Theatre was pretty clean. Friendly staff

l odom

A small and cozy theater. And it is benficial to keep your student i.d. for student discount on tickets.

Sean Khan

Beautiful architecture

Charlie B

Good theater with an interesting selection of movie and the best movie theater popcorn I have ever had. The facilities do feel a little out dated (they don't have reclining seats, and it just feels like a slightly older theater), but I think it is still great. I had watched blackkklansman here and it was very good.

Diana Olivos

Small theater w/nice staff, would definitely come here again!

Matei Ionita

My appreciation for Ritz five says less about its efforts than about its lack of competition. It's the only theater in Philadelphia showing movies other than blockbusters.

Travis C

Employee introduces the movie, completely unnecessary.

Mark Browning

Place is always great. Quiet. Interesting movies.

Khloe Prem

Amazing food, atmosphere, and really unique movies. One of my favorite theaters!!

An arts movie theater with a personalized touch. A well instructed staff educated to provide personal, respectful customer services.

Movie was funny. Popcorn was little stale service was great. Employees were kind and friendly

JoAnn Gleeson

How come I have to go to Philly to see a great movie. Thanks Ritz for five star movies.

Kathy Burns

My neck ached from having to look up at the screen for 2 hours, and we sat in the middle of the theater. Theater designers should try sitting in the theaters they design. The movie, On the Basis of Sex, was fantastic.

Sukari Keetin

The staff is very nice

Jonny Glassman

Maybe my favorite movie theater in Philly. This is the theater to go to if you want to watch a movie the right way. They have a no cell phone policy and even monitor the theaters to enforce the rule. Staff is very polite and helpful. They show Academy Award quality movies at the theater so don't go in expecting to see any blockbusters, but if you're into more artsy or Indy movies this is the theater for you.

Pat Rocchi

Good movies there

Peter Goff

Excellent movie theater...

Andrew Pollard

Great movie theater. Shows such fantastic independent movies.

Alexander Sulaiman

Nice theather. Does not get crowded.

Kelly Gotkin

Cute independent theater. Good selection of films you won't usually find elsewhere

Autumn Wallace

Free refills on large popcorn bundle with soda, nice intimate setting and lots of seasonings for popcorn...#popcorn

Tom Gorman

One of the nicest theaters I've ever been to. Free refills on popcorn and soda. Save with validated parking, though we had to walk a bit.

Sir'ron Watson

They managment was very accommodating, and the staff is super nice!

Matthew Gansert

Turn up the A/C!

Greg Van Riper

I love going to all 3 Ritz theaters. They're all excellent with an awesome choice of movies to see.

Tamara Oakman

The staff is professional and friendly. The snacks are good. Even if you don't like the movie, you will have something to discuss. They are always interesting.

Sheryl Shapiro

Great place, along with the other 2 Ritz Theaters, to catch "art" cinema, independent films, and documentaries.

Denise Fennell

This place is so awesome. I loved the movies that are shown there ... the staff are friendly folks. Clean restroom and good popcorn!

steven Rosner

It's a rather pleasant movie theater, in historic Society Hill. There are many esoteric films,shown in Philly's three(3) Ritz movie theaters. On occasion,I have seen films here,that I've missed in NYC. Finally,unlike any other place that I know of, they still sell real Buttered Popcorn. I mean,pop corn,that might stain your clothing.

Richard Schnolis

I love this theater. They always show the best indie and arts house films, including specialty features like the royal Shakespeare company and opera movies. The concessions are good and the place is always clean.

Anthony Gregorius

Not the fancy/new theaters around. But a place with great popcorn, friendly staff, and patrons who respect a film.

Nicholas Zornosa

One of my favorites places in the world - the definition of "art house."

joseph Castine

Great small screen venue. Best films available.

alicia vandersluis

Felt like a kid again before recliners were a thing

jason dyer

I am a huge fan of the manager and her entire staff. The movie selection top notch. I feel confident in the five start rating I gave to them. Enjoy!

doris

Very cute place. So so so cute.

Sergei Kuznetsov

Nice friendly stuff. Place is rather small for big city. No seniors discount on weekends.

Ole time theater with comfy seats that hosts obscure, or soon to be released films. I especially enjoyed the Q&A after the movie Long Shots.

I have been going to the Ritz Five on the rare occasion for at least 25 or so years. But over the past five years, after becoming a member of the Philadelphia Film Society, I and my girl screens pre wide released or small indie films or at the Ritz 5 or one of it's two sister theaters (Ritz East & Ritz Bourse) around 75 times yearly. While the theater seats are in need of updating, they are clean and not shabby in any way. The screening rooms are always clean (no sticky floors), the sound is clear and the screens are full size. I estimate the largest of the 5 screening rooms holds 350 - 400 guests. The theater is not updated for 3-D films to my knowledge. No biggie for us. This theaters claim to fame is it's focus on small films that you are not likely to see elsewhere. Be they documentaries or indie produced stories. The films are from all over the world and in their original languages, requiring sub-title reading sometimes. This can take some getting used to, especially if you are a slower reader because in some languages like Chinese where the speech is quick, you almost have to be a speed reading to catch everything. If you view this as a challenge rather than an annoyance, you will enjoy the experience better. Our favorite foreign language film genre are Hong Kong crime films. Good stories, acting , direction and fantastic "bang bang, shoot em up" action. However, main stream films are shown there also. So don't get the wrong idea that only "artsy fartsy" films are shown there. Wednesday is discount ticket day...all day long. For years I have considered Ritz theater concession stands the best in the city. Because besides making available candy from other countries that you will be hard pressed to find elsewhere (although not as unique as it was years earlier because of the up cropping of upscale confection and desert shops over the last decade) it is only one of 4 theaters (the 2 other Ritz properties and The Roxy Theater) that serves real butter on it's popcorn! Not the artificial swill served as butter on popcorn at the big box movie theater chains. Yuck. Tip: If you say "layer it" when you order popcorn, the attendant will put butter on the popcorn in the half filled bag, fill it up and add more on top. Yum. You can get Italian sodas (less carbonated), bottled juices, teas & water, premium ice cream popsicles, rich coffee, hot teas (lemon ginger is my favorite)...along with the common fare you expect to see at most movie theater concession stands. For reasons I have no clue about, they do not serve Nathans hot dogs like their 2 sister theaters. Bummer. Lastly, while it is possible to find a metered parking space on the street, many times you may have to park in a garage. They have a discount arrangement with one multi-level parking lot on 2nd Street about 2/3 of a block from Ritz 5. Ask the theater attendant for a parking voucher and using it will get you 50% off of the parking fee. About $10.00 instead of $21.00. Nice. Enjoy!

This is a very nice theater where the staff all look formally dressed. They show only certain films but they are of a better quality.

I enjoy the atmosphere and the other patrons even the women who are a little chatty during the movie sometimes. They have way too many broken items , the theatre should be overhauled.

Diane Lee Newman

My favorite Philadelphia theater! I've loved this place since the 1980's.

Delsea Marlena

Way over priced food and water. The theater is small in side.

Kathy Burns

My neck ached from having to look up at the screen for 2 hours, and we sat in the middle of the theater. Theater designers should try sitting in the theaters they design. The movie, On the Basis of Sex, was fantastic.

Sukari Keetin

The staff is very nice

Jonny Glassman

Maybe my favorite movie theater in Philly. This is the theater to go to if you want to watch a movie the right way. They have a no cell phone policy and even monitor the theaters to enforce the rule. Staff is very polite and helpful. They show Academy Award quality movies at the theater so don't go in expecting to see any blockbusters, but if you're into more artsy or Indy movies this is the theater for you.

Peter Goff

Excellent movie theater...

Andrew Pollard

Kelly Gotkin

Autumn Wallace

Sir'ron Watson

They managment was very accommodating, and the staff is super nice!

Matthew Gansert

Turn up the A/C!

Tamara Oakman

The staff is professional and friendly. The snacks are good. Even if you don't like the movie, you will have something to discuss. They are always interesting.

steven Rosner

It's a rather pleasant movie theater, in historic Society Hill. There are many esoteric films,shown in Philly's three(3) Ritz movie theaters. On occasion,I have seen films here,that I've missed in NYC. Finally,unlike any other place that I know of, they still sell real Buttered Popcorn. I mean,pop corn,that might stain your clothing.

Richard Schnolis

I love this theater. They always show the best indie and arts house films, including specialty features like the royal Shakespeare company and opera movies. The concessions are good and the place is always clean.

Nicholas Zornosa

One of my favorites places in the world - the definition of "art house."

Felt like a kid again before recliners were a thing

I am a huge fan of the manager and her entire staff. The movie selection top notch. I feel confident in the five start rating I gave to them. Enjoy!
