We visit the light quite often as it’s our local cinema. The prices are very reasonable compared to places like Liverpool one’s Odeon. The cinemas and screens are always clean, the seats comfortable. Never had any issues whatsoever. The staff are always pleasant and friendly.

They do do something like a season ticket that you pay for monthly, but not sure if it is individually or for whole family.
