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.

Great location for the cinema and lovely staff. Only problem for my wife and I are the nachos. They taste like cardboard and the cheese sauce was disgusting. Other than that great place and go very often!

We have been regular users of this cinema since it opened. It is so easy to book tickets Online, and thereby avoid unnecessary delays when there are 'Blockbuster' films attracting sometimes huge queues. The seats are really comfortable, with plenty of legroom - all the seats are of the same standard as at other cinemas class as 'luxury'. Very highly... More

Hello there. Although I do write plenty of reviews for restaurants it occurred to me that I have never written one for other important places of enjoyment and leisure; and for me the best one on The Wirral by some distance is the wonderful Light cinema in New Brighton. I must have been here this year alone about 6 times,... More

Wow, what a lovely cinema. Very clean and quite new, huge comfortable seats with great views of gigantic screens. Very reasonable pricing with offers for pre-noon seats at £5 each!!!! Not bad for new releases 👍🏻 Will definitely be back!

The Light used to have happy, helpful fun staff - all gone now and replaced with miserable , impersonal staff. Was looking for the tumbleweed!

I have to be honest here and say that I would choose any other cinema in Wirral over The Lights. It is small, cramped and badly organised. On more than one occasion I have seen people enter the room and been unable to find a seat, does this mean they over sell tickets? Even if not, the seating lay outs... More
