This cinema is really easy to get to from the trainstation and the city centre. The cinema itself is very clean and offers a wide range of foods and drink. The connected restaurant is also pretty standard. The cinema screens are tightly packed but the screens and sounds are of high quality. With discounts it is a perfect Friday night... More

This is the cinema for any discerning snob out there who does not like the souless drudgery that is the Odeon. At Harbour Lights you can pick up a tasty lunch, snack or cake. You can go in with coffee, or wine, lager or any drink of your choice. There is popcorn that isn't served in a wasteful bucket. It... More

We went to see Fantastic beasts and where to find them! Looking online at my corporate discount codes I noticed that Picture house cinemas had now been included! Cheaper than the mainstream rivals like Odeon and with better reviews it was a no brained! Firstly, the site has free and easily accessible parking with a beautiful few of the harbour!... More

Always nice to find an Independent cinema. This one is OK - nice vibe, comfy seats, lots of nice drink and food options but wine crazy expensive. Don't rely on satnav as you will get lost. we parked easily but went at a quiet time. Not great but better than any multiplex

Lovely evening out at the cinema, seats were much more comfortable than those in competitors such as odeon, plus everything was much cleaner and more pleasant in general. The ticket was actually cheaper than the price at the odeon, and the snacks are much better, things like pizza, brownie and panini's available and not unreasonably priced. Staff were nice and...

I do enjoy going to harbour lights to watch films mostly because it often screens independent films which I thoroughly enjoy. Sometimes there are Q&A sessions with independent filmmakers which gives an opportunity to learn more about a feature. The cinema also holds autism friendly, dementia friendly screenings, kids screenings and hard of hearing/deaf screenings. You'll need to find out... More

Lovely terrace. Good service. Drinks by the marina. Relaxed and friendly. Chill on sofas inside or sit in the sun on the outside terrace. Lovely for a drink or food even if you're not going to the cinema!

Only found out about this on Monday and 2 days later I'm here with a ticket to watch Bridget Jones' Baby with my 3 month old. A stunning cinema/picture house with a lovely decent size screen, free parking and great indoor/outdoor seating areas with a bar/cafe type area. Very welcoming and clearly child friendly. Will definitely return to Big Scream... More

Tucked out the way this is a gem. Lovely cafe, comfortable seats that recline and an all round highly enjoyable experience. Two screens always show interesting films. Cinema / toilets clean no wasted popcorn in site!

I haven't been to Harbour Lights for a while and I can definitely say, it is now my no.1 cinema in Southampton. In fact, I will now endeavour to go no place else. Comfy seats, loads of leg room, cool, bar/restaurant and Leffe to boot!
