“Best cinema in the world”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Wow, what an experience! We can only describe this cinema as the best kept secret in Wellington. We went to see "Philomena" and was so surprised to see the inside of the cinema. Here was the most comfortable couches with scatter pillows....just like watching movies with the comforts of home. If you wish, you can also enjoy a good quality NZ wine whilst watching the movie. The management's hospitality was exemplary of how it should be done. The foyer also had comfortable seating and spotlessly clean unisex toilets lead off from the passage. The indisputable highlight to our visit to Wellington. Well done Light House Cinema, you guys rock!

“Best Cinema Ever”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Why we went: I am a longtime listener of the Cinematica podcast so wanted to visit the newest cinema of the podcaster.
The Experience: Fantastic - the nicest cinema I've ever been to. Excellent projection and sound. Comfortable seating - two seater couches with a little cushion, just like home. A great selection of NZ wine to drink while you watch. Also, clean, private toilet facilities.
I recommend this for: Overseas visitors - it blows away any cinema I have seen internationally. Kiwis looking for a quiet respite from the bustling city. This sets the standard for all cinemas.
