Sydney’s Ritz marks 85 years with biggest retro film program ever

85 years in the movie biz means 85 years worth of films to look back on in this whopping birthday bash program.

Sydney’s Ritz cinema is turning 85, and to celebrate they’re sparing no expense in bringing 85 films to the screen over 85 days.

Each film shown will represent each year the Ritz has been open, beginning in the 30s with films like A Star is Born and The Wizard of Oz, and ending in 2021 with The Green Knight. Select sessions of the retrospective films will screen in 35mm, 70mm and 4K formats.
