Love this place! A small cinema where you can have a proper evening out - decent food (on the terrace on a sunny day), a drink before the film and you can take your glasses in! The seats are roomy and tiered so everyone can...More

This is a superb venue, arrive early and have a drink and a piping hot tasty pizza, sit outside beside the boats in the marina. When you drive into Ocean Village, the Signs for the Harbour Lights are stupidly small, the parking is free but...More

This is a really nice cinema and I highly recommend it. The selection of films is more eclectic and art-house than a multiplex. Screen one is very spacious and comfortable. There is also a nice bar area with outside seating overlooking the marina.

This is the cinema for any discerning snob out there who does not like the souless drudgery that is the Odeon. At Harbour Lights you can pick up a tasty lunch, snack or cake. You can go in with coffee, or wine, lager or any...More

We went to see Fantastic beasts and where to find them! Looking online at my corporate discount codes I noticed that Picture house cinemas had now been included! Cheaper than the mainstream rivals like Odeon and with better reviews it was a no brained! Firstly,...More

Always nice to find an Independent cinema. This one is OK - nice vibe, comfy seats, lots of nice drink and food options but wine crazy expensive. Don't rely on satnav as you will get lost. we parked easily but went at a quiet time....More
