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.

There was a cue and most pictures were due to start or already had started and they were working in pairs so only 2 tills being used instead of it speeding things up it just seemed to delay as the staff seemed to be more chit chatty amongst them selves whilst serving. We just about made it on time for... More

Bought drinks prior to going in to see film. The young lady who served us was really friendly and good at her job. Think her new was Sarah. Got us in a good mood prior to watching the film.

This is such an inexpensive way to fill our day. Saturday started off rainy so we got on to the Light Website. Planned our day to perfection. My Daughter is an Infinity Subscriber, so she pays £16.95 for the month and can go to see as many films as she wants for the whole month! Incredulous Value! Three films alone... More

A few of us went here to watch a film that a friend had directed. Staff were friendly but incredibly laid back and as such slow to respond i.e queue for popcorn as no one about, long wait for drinks - one guy poured the pint then another took the money. Have to say though that the seats are well... More

We visited on a Sunday at 4 pm to see Independence Day, Cost for the two tickets was nearly £19! Would have thought it would have been cheaper early on in a Sunday! Was shocked at this price!!

I've been a regular visitor to the Light since they first opened. High quality screens and seats. Amazingly friendly staff. No additional costs for blockbusters or 3D movies (not counting glasses). Well worth a visit.

After a poor experience I called the venue and spoke to the manager who could not be of any assistance. Far to many issues to list individually but air will try and cover the basics. The staff were utterly rude and unhelpful but what can you expect when that's the service I received from the management also. My husband received... More
