Great little cinema with a fab bar and friendly staff. It's hasn't got the bells and whistles (e.g. IMAX, big screens) of other picture houses but definitely a better atmosphere and a broader range of films. The reclining seats are really comfy too. Would recommend...More

Lovely evening out at the cinema, seats were much more comfortable than those in competitors such as odeon, plus everything was much cleaner and more pleasant in general. The ticket was actually cheaper than the price at the odeon, and the snacks are much better,...More

I do enjoy going to harbour lights to watch films mostly because it often screens independent films which I thoroughly enjoy. Sometimes there are Q&A sessions with independent filmmakers which gives an opportunity to learn more about a feature. The cinema also holds autism friendly,...More

Lovely terrace. Good service. Drinks by the marina. Relaxed and friendly. Chill on sofas inside or sit in the sun on the outside terrace. Lovely for a drink or food even if you're not going to the cinema!
