Ritz Cinema Local Initiative

10th March 2014
There are few buildings in Lincoln that can provoke more nostalgic affection than The Ritz Cinema on Lincoln’s High Street, both due to the appeal of the older and more charming generations of cinematic masterpieces that were shown at the venue and the realisation it may well be Lincoln’s finest architectural example of a classic Art Deco building.
Many of Lincoln’s old cinemas were unremarkable and quickly declined into nothing but distant memories of buildings that once were, but The Ritz has remained and stood the test of time.
Laying dormant for well over a decade the building houses the dust covered remains of the original cinema on the upper floors and is slowly coming to life once again with the dreams and ambitions of The Ritz Team, working with the local community to realise a future which brings this magnificent building back to life as a fully operation period cinematic experience and community hub for Lincoln’s High Street once again.
Starglaze are pleased to confirm that for every like and share made in March (to a maximum of £500) they will donate £2 towards the renovation of the Ritz Cinema to help purchase flooring for the stage area.
The Ritz Cinema on Lincoln High Street above Weatherspoons is being restored by a group of volunteers back to a Cinema and Theatre. In the last 18 months the auditorium has taken shape, wallpaper and painting have been done and next stage is to sort out the flooring. The Grand Opening is scheduled for 5th April 2014.
Please help to support this local initiative.
