Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
In terms of entertainment, the classic Art Deco Warner Quad Movie Theater has been in operation since the 1930s, showing a mix of blockbusters and art house films in a stylish setting. Ridgewood Guild International Film Festival brings special screenings and red carpet premieres to this delightful cinema each April. Charming independent businesses include Bookends, which hosts regular book signings, and Town & Country Apothecary & Fine Cosmetics.
Things to Do
More community events take place at Vet’s Field, which has sports fields and playgrounds for use throughout the year. The beach-style pool at Graydon Park is another great Ridgewood spot to unwind and enjoy the summertime. Saddle River Country Park covers almost 600 acres between Ridgewood, Rochelle Park, and Glen Rock, with attractions including a wild duck pond.
New arrivals should register with Ridgewood Newcomers, which has been introducing new transplants to Ridgewood’s many community organizations, clubs, and activities since the 1940s.
