REEL FILM - exclusive shows presented in 35mm & 70mm

"The language of cinema is universal, in a time of great divisions, conflicts, transformations, it's really crucial to preserve and share our cultural patrimonies and to ensure that this universal language will speak to future generations around the world."
- Martin Scorsese

We at The Ritz Cinema are massive believers in keeping "true film" (i.e. 35mm and 70mm celluloid film) alive in the 21st century. In this age of digital cinema, shrinking screens and low resolution, celluloid film is an endangered species.

So as we are all huge film fans, we are doing our best to keep film alive by sourcing super rare and recently unseen 35mm and 70mm film prints to present to new audiences and allow a new generation of film fans to experience the sharp pictures and epic sounds of celluloid film.

See our list of exclusive 35mm and 70mm screenings below, and come help us support and give new life to this incredible medium.

  • Six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Demian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

2001: A Space Odyssey in 35mm

  • Cast
  • Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester
  • Director
  • Stanley Kubrick
  • Synopsis
  • Stanley Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award-winning achievement (Special Visual Effects) is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of man vs. machine. Featuring a stunning meld of music and motion, the film was also Oscar nominated for Best Director and Best Screenplay. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits the prehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.
