Right in the centre of Wolverhampton , a few minutes walk from the Bus station and a comfortable seat . We tend to go on Wednesday Matinees when you also get a free coffee to carry into to one of the two screens available . A good cinema .

After quite a long journey we arrived at this centre to find that the galleries had been closed due to austerity cuts. Although we completely understood and sympathised with their explanation, we felt it would have been helpful to have been informed accordingly beforehand via this web sight, as the main reason for our visit were the galleries. However the... More

There are so many things going on at the Lighthouse these days, with up to date films, plays from the National Theatre live, Operas and Ballets on film, and a whole host of other things - Craft Fairs, Knit and Natter groups, French, German, Italian and German conversation (not as lessons, just conversation). There is a friendly little bar with... More

The programme of films continues to be excellent. A much wider choice than one might expect from a two screen venue. Many very recent productions. Theatre, opera, ballet screenings also. Comfortable and warm. Welcoming staff. Good café/bar.

This is a smashing little cinema in th centre of the city. They show many of the big blockbusters, plus foreign language films, operas etc. Friendly staff and a nice cafe with Orange Wednesdays too - who could ask for more!

This is my favourite cinema in Wolves. The building itself is a great example of regeneration. The gallery is normally worth a quick viewing. The only place in town where they will screen non-mainstream films. On top of that you can bring your beer into the film. All very pleasant.

Lovely building to house the wonderful light-house cinema. Great venue, central, near food places, town, pubs etc. Many attractions in one building not just cinema - food, art etc. Just visit the web site. Something to suit everyone. Just call in the café for coffee/tea/food and see for yourself.

I haven't a bad word to say about The Lighthouse and feel very lucky to have this resource on my doorstep. Cinema is great, once you've visited here you will avoid the multiplexs like the plague. Lovely cosy atmosphere. Would recommend the National Theatre Live productions though they sell out quickly.

The Light House is a must for all looking for some culture in Wolverhampton. Just away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre is Lock Works Cafe Bar set inside the Light House over looking the courtyard of the historic Chubb Buildings. I've visited on many occasions and have never been disappointed, A cafe bar that also serves... More
