Lovely little cinema showing stuff you don't always see in the big screens, and in a much nicer atmosphere. The blockbusters usually get here too, but sometimes a little after screenings elsewhere.

The bar area is so nice here and staff very friendly. It is such a nice cinema to visit rather than the large multiplex types in most towns and cities these days. The bar cafe is open during the day and is an excellent place to stop and meet friends. A hidden gem in Wolverhampton.

Film quiz. Beer. Coffee. Crisps. Very good atmosphere on film quiz night. Helpful staff and you never have to wait long to get served. The coffee is very good. And you can take drinks into the cinema. Result!

I spent a pleasant evening in the company of Spanish, Italian and English people at the Meet Up for Spanish speakers, at the light house situated in the Chubb Buildings, Wolverhampton. The Spanish speakers group meet up every two weeks to converse in Spanish. Before the meet up I had a delightful ham salad sandwich on brown bread, together with... More

Well worth discovering, the Light House has regular film screenings, live performance events, an exhibition space, frequent Vintage Fairs, regular (and free) language cafes, and a bar/cafe area. There's a glass-roofed courtyard, so you can sit 'outside' even in bad weather. All this in a historic building.

I regularly visit the Light House for films and food in the Lock Works Cafe. The space is beautiful and the atmosphere is always lovely. The staff are very friendly and are always around to help if you need them. I much prefer to go to the Light House to see a film then to a mainstream cinema, It's more... More

You will always find something contemporary to see here, a platform for local and other contemporary artists to exhibit in an intimate space. Also a chance to watch films of various genres and to enjoy freshly prepared food and drinks. When the sun shines it's lovely to sit out in the courtyard and enjoy the architecture.

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
