An early meal and then to the Lighthouse Cuba for a good movie. An ideal night out for us! Warm, smiling service, comfortable seating in boutique theatre, coffee or wine to enjoy while watching, a selection of snacks if desired. All good! We are usually lucky to find a parking space nearby.

What a great cinema this is. Found it on a visit to Wellington. Saw a movie on New years day. It was super busy. 3 cinemas to choose from. Quaint coffee shop. Perfect.

Comfortable couch seating. You can eat or drink wine in the company of abut 30 people while watching a movie.

Slow service which is a downer when the movie is about to start. Also expensive. Some more investment to match the price and brand please.

Went to the lighthouse to grab a movie with a group of friends. The experience is much more low key than say going to a traditional theater... the theater it self is much smaller and the seating is superior quality. Small setting big sound excellent experience and fantastic staff.

If you don't like the large mall type Cineplex experience, why not try Lighthouse Cinema. It is a boutique neighbourhood cinema, graet ambience with a very nice small cafe. Great coffee.

What a cool little gem, love the couches instead of those horrible theatre seats. Sipping on a cool wine whilst relaxing in front of your next favourite movie. Great way to kill time or a rainy day.

We really loved this cinema experience, actually it was a highlight of our stay in Wellington. Caught an über from our hotel to right outside the cinema which was warm with a great atmosphere. Cinema seats comfy with cushions and cinema acoustics pleasing. Booked tickets online for ease prior to arrival. Popcorn free with coffee, cabinet snacks and wine/beer available... More
