Ritz at the Bourse shutters - temporarily
Replacing entire HVAC system takes one of Center City's premier screen venues out of commission for a month.
Ritz at the Bourse shutters – temporarily
It started last summer – or, more accurately, it didn’t start. At the height of the hot and humid season, when taking shelter in the darkened cool of a movie house brings a couple of hours of relief – the air conditioning system at the Ritz at the Bourse would not work.
Finally, Landmark Theaters, owners of the Ritz Theaters, are fixing the problem – replacing the entire HVAC operation in the five-screen, 4th and Ranstead complex. The films booked into the sleek subterranean venue – including Hysteria and Peace, Love and Misunderstanding -- will be shuffled to screens at the nearby Ritz East and Ritz Five in the mean time.
“If all goes according to plan,” says a Landmark spokesperson, the Bourse will be back in business by mid-July. Cool.
