Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great Cinema, friendly staff, nice fresh popcorn. The screen was a good size, with good sound. The usual cinema seats with nice comfy sofas at the top (which we sat on). The only downfall was having to move popcorn off our seats before using them and we could see that a lot of the others seats and the floors were covered in popcorn as well. So other than needing a good clean a good cinema.

Just been to the The Shape of Water. Enjoyable experience with the friendly staff talking knowledgeable about upcoming films and asking if we enjoyed it.

It's a good cinema for Oamaru. The cashiers are nice and it has got tasty popcorn. I go there quite often with friends or family.

Limelight Cinema was within very easy walking distance of our accommodation while staying in Oamaru. Our penguin tour hadn't finished too late so we went along to watch one of the latest movies. I was pleased to see they sold hot drinks as I was still feeling the cold from the penguin tour BUT the coffee machine wasn't working. Tickets were $15 each which is a bit pricier than what we're used to (we can get into our local cinema for $11 each), however this is a smaller cinema so perhaps they need to charge a little extra. Typically the snacks weren't cheap (it never is at movie theatres).
There are four theatres, we weren't given a seat allocation so could sit wherever we liked. There were some couches up the back but they looked like they had seen better days.
The screen and sound system were fine. The one staff member we dealt with was nice and polite.
Most definitely not the best movie theatre I've visited, however it filled in a few hours.
