“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” – a favourite with our loyal Silver Screen audiences;
“Skyfall” – the first film in UK Cinema history to gross over £100m.
“Les Miserables” – still filling screens since its opening on 11 January. This stirring and emotive musical had customers reaching for the complimentary tissues provided by our wonderful team.
We have had good reason to celebrate our first anniversary as our audience numbers have rocketed, bringing visitors from all parts of the Wirral and beyond, to the jewel in the crown of New Brighton’s regeneration at Marine Point.
We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and go the extra mile to provide a superior cinema experience.
Our extra comfy seats, licensed auditoria, mixed programme and competitive offers ensure that the Light is the cinema of choice on the Wirral.
Working closely with other businesses, Marine Point offers an unbeatable range of retail, restaurant and leisure experiences ranging from watersports to children’s entertainment, plus retail, restaurant and leisure – making New Brighton Wirral’s premier leisure destination.
Our classical programme of opera and ballet continues to delight audiences – and due to popular demand, we have added more screenings to our full and varied programme, to include:
- Andrea Bocelli – Love Songs from Portofino (a Mother’s Day Treat) – Sat 9 March, 7.30pm Sunday 10 March, 4.30pm;
- Ennio Morricone – Live from the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday 21 May;
- “Chasing Ice” on Monday 22 April, 7.00pm, with a special introduction from Greenpeace. Dr Miguel Angel Morales Maqueda, an expert on the Arctic Ocean and sea ice dynamics working at the National Oceanography Centre (University of Liverpool) will introduce this Oscar-nominated documentary, and there will an opportunity for Q&As afterwards. The stunning film follows National Geographic photographer James Balog across the Arctic as he deploys time-lapse cameras designed for one purpose: to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.
- Opera Australia’s exquisite recording of “Madama Butterfly” will be coming in June (date tbc).
Another unique series of events at the Light is “The Comedy Store: Raw & Uncut” (Cert 18) – giving audiences a unique opportunity to enjoy the very best in comedy from London’s legendary home of stand-up in the comfort of their local cinema. The first installment will be launched in cinemas on 22 February with the remaining three shows following in fortnightly intervals
We hope to see you at the Light Cinema soon – where we guarantee a truly wonderful cinematic experience for everyone!
