A great venue for theatre and showing of old favorite movies. I always attend cinema gourmet and other events. The venue is comfortable and easily accessible. On cinema gourmet evening, a light supper is served by Indigo Shanty a local restaurant. Cinema gourmet includes the showing of an old favorite movie with commentary by a live presenter from the grand... More

This little theatre is truly a step back in time to the olden days. If you sit in the balcony, there are stairs to climb. Sound was GREAT! We attended a music concert and could see and hear perfectly from the balcony. Theatre cld use a few more "facilities" during break time. :) We had a great time. People who... More

Saw "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" with an interesting discussion prior to the movie. Gave little known facts about the movie. The food was good and we brought our own soft drinks and water. I suggest you bring trays to eat off of. We're going back this week to see 'Seven Year Itch'.

Absolutely wonderful Elvis Festival put on by Sherry Management. The Ritz Theatre was a wonderful place to have this. Great seating and acoustics ---- very polite and courteous staff. Very well organized. The concert put on by Travis Powell was unbelievable. It was like Elvis had entered the building.

I think the cost was $5 for the movie night that I attended with friends. My friends had tickets that included a pre show dinner of German foods so their tickets may have been about $18 each. We watched the movie "Cabaret" but for me the highlight of being there was the speaker who discussed the actors/actresses and the mood... More

This is a great showcase for local talent. They have live performances, art shows that highlight local artists and students, some very promising. I have enjoyed the displays, performances as well as the hospitality. Great place to take the whole family.

The Ritz is an historic old theater in downtown Brunswick. It is a nice place to see a musical performance or a show. Feel like it does need a bit of refurbishment to bring it back to the original beauty. I know it has been updated but the workmanship and comfort do not do this old theater any justice. Look...

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, we do not have any evidence of the original interiors of the building, so a restoration like they have done at the Fox is not possible. However, we are incredibly grateful to the Fox Theatre Institute for their help in restoring the exterior and sign! More
