The Ritzy

Today is the 100th birthday of our local cinema, The Ritzy in Brixton.  It's a great cinema that shows a good mix of arty/mainstream films.  It's a great building too so I decided to draw it!  Interestingly at some point all the ornate original features were removed and it was turned in to an almost art deco like shape.  It was then restored in the 90s and now it's nearly impossible to tell that the features aren't original!
