Toccoa’s Historic Ritz Theatre kicks off summer movie series in July

The Historic Ritz Theatre’s summer movie series will kick-off on Thursday, July 2nd with three showings of the WWI drama, 1917 at 10:00 am, 3:00 pm, and 7:00 pm.

To help usher in Independence Day weekend, the theatre has chosen the award-winning blockbuster, 1917. Set during World War I, two British soldiers — Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake — receive seemingly impossible orders. In a race against time, they must cross over into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their fellow comrades — including Blake’s own brother.

The movie stars George McKay, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dean-Charles Chapman, and Colin Firth. It is Rated-R with a run time of 1 hour 59 minutes.

ID’s will be checked at the door.

Because of social distancing guidelines, each showtime will be limited to the first 100 guests. Hand sanitizers will be available throughout the theatre and face masks are encouraged. The theatre will be cleaned and disinfected between each show.

Tickets and concessions are just $1 each, cash only.
