We found ourselves at a loose end in Petone on a Saturday night and stumbled across this great little old movie theatre. Lots of atmosphere. Recommended

The Lighthouse always provides a good movie experience in a variety of cinemas. Good phone and online booking service. Food and drink is quite expensive.

This is my local cinema since the earthquakes and even though they don't play all the movies released it is still a great place to watch a film and the service is amazing.

Been a few times staff are friendly the theaters, cafe and foyers are always clean and well presented but the cabinet cafe food is a bit overpriced. Still won't hesitate to go back.
