Sibling to same-named cinemas in both the CBD and Petone, Light House Pauatahanui is the only independent movie spot for some miles around, so those living in the area who are partial to watching things on the big screen have ample opportunity to stay up-to-date with the latest in film. The mix of blockbuster and independent films screened here means there’s something for any type of movie fan, while student discounts, Light House Littlies screenings (for caregivers and babies) and fundraising films ensure this is a community spot through and through.

In true Light House Cinema fashion, there’s a wide range of delicious looking treats to consume, as well as a selection of New Zealand wine and craft beers. Although if it’s the classic sort of movie snack you’re after, we’re not judging (Pringles and pineapple lumps, anyone?). Outdoor seating on the deck and a spacious café area inside means it’s not uncommon for Light House to be used simply as a catch up spot for coffee and eats, too. Grab an ice cream in a cone, a glass of your favourite rosé and settle in to be entertained for a couple of hours by a boutique cinema experience.
