Owner description: 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.

A very enjoyable cinema experience here every time. Last night we saw the film about Christopher Robin which was fantastic especially if you’re an A.A. Milne fan. The usual very spacious comfy seats make this my favourite cinema by far.

Apart from the usual treble price for sweets which I don’t buy from here just some advice in the coffee...
It takes about five precious minutes to prepare which makes people rush for their film, creates long queues and which takes up very valuable staff time. The coffee isn’t great anyway so here’s the advice. Get a machine like Wetherspoons latest or Morrison’s, takes 40 seconds a cup and get people to help themselves if needs be. Charge £1.49 a large cup to go and you’ll be the talk of the town. Good luck! Great cinema!

Went to see Dunkirk. Great view of screen and comfy seats. Helpful staff. Reasonably priced tickets even without two for one deal.

I've been to this place a lot since it opened, and it's become my favourite cinema on the Wirral. It's situated in a lovely seaside location, and the cinema itself is beautifully decorated with paintings of famous actors and movie characters, clean and comfortable, with friendly and helpful staff. The café is a very nice touch, and the screen rooms themselves have possibly the most comfortable seating around, with high quality audio and visual technology. If you're a cinephile looking for somewhere to really enjoy your next movie, look no further.

Not sure what I expected from a cinema but this place was great, not your usual run of the mill cinema but some great artwork throughout and makes the place feel bright and modern. Prices were cheaper than the odeon prices and there were plenty of snacks and refreshments to choose from including hot drinks, alcohol and hot dogs which again are all reasonably priced. The seats were so comfy I wasn't expecting it, you just sink into it - it's almost like sitting on a couch with a comfy headrest! Plus there was loads of leg space so you weren't cramped in like sardines in a tin! The place was clean and tidy and clearly maintained well by the staff, who although were very young, were professional and helpful (if a little understaffed). We throughly enjoyed our visit here and would recommend it to anyone and hope to go back one day with the kids as we'd save money compared to the odeon! So give it a try it really is great!
