Live music! Drinks! Classic film! DRINKS! The Ritz’s 80th Birthday Bash!

piccadilly-web1Some people assume that the Alamo invented classiness, but it turns out that it's been around for about 80 years now.

This October, the Ritz theater itself will be 80 years old. It's been through some changes but for most of that time it has been open for business and showing movies. We're honored to carry on the Ritz tradition. And for this momentous anniversary, we're going to party like it's 1929. We'll be showing the amazing late-silent classic PICCADILLY, starring beauteous Anna May Wong as a dishwasher who rises to star dancing attraction at a posh London club. It's an astonishing film that few will ever have a chance to see on the big screen. But that's not all. Accompanying the film will be Erik Hokkanen and his band. Hokkanen is a master of jazz and gypsy music and his stylings will take you back to the roaring '20s.

In addition we will have a number of other samplings from the era and are even offering a special price-fixed menu of luxurious, ritzy food. Don't worry though, our recreation of the era will be incorrect in one small regard: there will be NO alcohol prohibition.

Choose between the standard admission or the fancy dinner version, and get those tickets HERE!
