Going to the cinema is about so much more than watching a film. At Light House we try to create an environment of comfort and sophistication to deliver a unique cinema experience. In Petone, our cinema offers a warm and inviting venue. From our spacious cafe, offering fresh in-house food and a wide selection of fine beer and wine to our secluded upstairs lounge, Light House Petone offers an escape from the everyday. Sit back, relax and unwind.

Lovely, cosy theater. The couches are brilliant - comfy and perfect size with someone you know, might be a bit close with a stranger! Great selection of snacks and drinks.

We visit for a treat if there is a good movie showing. Always book ahead as this is such popular place. Good coffee, snacks, and comfortable small theatres always make for a delightful outing.

Great suburban theatre. Staff always friendly. Theatres very cosy. Only problem, parking can be an issue. Be prepared for a walk at certain times.

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
