My husband and I wanted to quickly catch up on all the oscar nominated movies recently and the Lighthouse Cinema was ideal. They had a good selection in their multi-theater complex, the seats are comfortable, and the theater is walkable from anywhere in Pacific Grove.

It is not the prettiest cinema. But, they offer current films at reasonable prices. The location is downtown Pacific Grove. They do have a snack bar with fairly reasonable prices. Beverages feature Pepsi products.

We were staying in Pacific Grove and noticed that the Lighthouse cinema was showing Spectre. Tickets were only $5 on a Tuesday, nice staff, comfortable seats. Offers on other nights too, worth checking it out. Large parking lot behind the cinema.

Nice local theater. There was free street parking and the price was lower than normal (it was a weekday).
