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 every opportunity to keep up to date with the latest in film. The mix of blockbuster and independent films screening here means there’s something for any type of movie fan, while student discounts, mums and bubs screenings 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 take in, 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 pods 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 coffee and eat spot 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.
