I love this theatre that is close to my home in Lower Hutt. It's small and intimate, and comfortable. Perfect part of a Petone night out, or a date night. #karenmurrell

<p>While looking small from the outside you&#8217;d never suspect there are three cinemas tucked away in this awesome heritage building. Each cinema has double couches instead of individual chairs which makes a perfect excuse to snuggle up and watch a good flick. They&#8217;ve always got the usual blockbusters on, with a mixture of older art house style films too. Having such a small intimate cinema means the audio and screen quality is unmatched.</p>

Built in the former Labour Hall just off Jackson St., Light House retained the old facade, giving the theatre the air of an older era. In the lobby, an employee announces each auditorium as it opens for the next show. As the original Light House Cinema, this theatre in Petone stays true to the 'Light House' aesthetic with cosy two-seater couches best suited for date nights, small screening rooms, and an upscale cafe at the front. Come in now for NZIFF screenings, or to see Swan Lake in 3D. 

Nice coffee, keen to watch a movie here sometime.
