Unable to review this cinema as I was Unable to use Meerkat Code when booking online. This prompted me to go to another Cinema Chain. I have been to another Light Cinema in the past and was able to use the Meerkat Code when face to face with a member of staff and there was no problem at all. So... More

The Light is a comfortable, cozy cinema. Unfortunately any interaction with the staff tends to ruin the occasion. Even ordering a simple cup of coffee takes much longer than it should. Many staff members are surly and unhelpful, and never say "please or thank-you". We have found the staff so off-putting that we have considered changing to a different cinema... More

I visited this cinema to see a film which was only being shown on one night in this cinema. Not knowing the area I used satnav and arrived in the area. I did struggle to find the cinema - and drove round and round trying to find it. Eventually realised parking was at Morrisons supermarket. I noticed you can park... More

Nice cinema, very clean. Staff friendly. Will definately return as ideal for visitors to the town when it's too wet to do anything along the sea front.

Has a cleaner, more caring and homely feel than The Vue or Odeon. The standard seats are far more comfortable than those in the other cinemas. Slightly more pricey but not noticeably. Would recommend getting tickets in advance on a Tuesday or Wednesday because it gets really busy as a result of Meerkat movies.
