Make your function an event to remember 

with Light House Cinema

Beautiful Locations

Whether you’re looking to host a red carpet gala, a small private screening or an afternoon out, we’ll work with you to create the perfect event in a stylish setting. With our three locations in the Wellington region, we have a range of cinemas to suit your needs, along with areas set aside for pre-film nibbles and post-film chat.

 

 

WARM HOSPITALITY

We have a dedicated in-house kitchen team who provide a wide range of catering options to suit a variety of dietary requirements, formality and personal taste, as well as Christmas-specific options. We serve canapes and platters, sweet and savoury, hot or cold. You're also welcome to run a bar tab with our carefully crafted wine and beers list.

Friendly staff are there to greet, serve and run your event from start to finish, and can help you with all your personalising touches, from serving a glass of bubbles as guests walk in the door or handing out ice-creams as they head into the cinema.

Quality Films

We show a diverse range of applauded independent films and some brilliant blockbusters too. Always looking for quality of genre, we take the guess work out of film choice. For a full list of our upcoming films, including trailers, click here to check out our coming soon films.

Special Rates

We offer special pricing to schools, holiday programmes and groups of senior citizens. Our Petone and Pauatahanui cinemas also offer a discounted birthday party rate in our Saturday morning and weekday afternoon slots - please enquire with our function managers.
