Those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are with us again, hopefully! We have some great films coming to The Ritz. But first let me make you an offer you can't refuse, because for two performances only we have one of the greatest films ever made, The Godfather, Francis Ford Coppola's epic mafia family saga.

If you've only ever seen it on TV or DVD take this chance to see it as the Director intended on our big panavision screen.

Filmed on location in Australia, Nims Island is a warm-hearted family comedy set on a magical island ruled by a young girl's imagination - Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin star.

Dennis Quaid stars in erudite comedy Smart People along with Sarah Jessica Parker - more about Sarah later.....
