The Light is an 8 screen cinema with state of the art digital picture and sound auditorium. This is not just a cinema, but a social hub for locals and visitors. Upon entering The Light you will be welcomed into a spacious café bar where you can have a drink and a light bite before or after the film. Enjoy a refreshing beer or a delicious coffee and choose from a selection of sandwiches and sweet treats. Specially created, movie themed artwork provides the backdrop for this café where you can sit and discuss the films. As an extra special touch, all screens are licensed, so you are free to take your refreshments into the screen to enjoy with your movie.

We've taken the children so many times to The Light cinema now, mainly to watch the latest Disney style cartoon releases. The cinema may only be small, but it is it's size which makes it more friendly, more home-like and with the super comfy seats, it's just like watching in your front room at home. Each screen only has about... More

It's a pleasure to sit in large and comfortable seats with ample leg room. I would choose to go to The Light over other cinemas because of this and New Brighton is a great place anyway. I found - and this is probably not peculiar to the Light only - that queuing for ice-cream and sweets is a bit long-winded... More

I live locally now, but even before then I would go out of my way to see films in The Light. The location is great, definitely get there early, pick up your tickets then have a wander around the Marine Lake with a Hot drink or ice cream (depending on what time of year it is!) The seats are comfortable... More

Always good experience at this cinema. I visit the cinema regularly and this is because it is comfortable, clean and good number of screens to show numerous films.

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
