It isn't very often in a little town like Newquay you see a multi million pound private investment. The multi screen cinema is state of the art.

Most tourists might say what's so special about a cinema as we've got one in our home town already. I would say to that 1. The admission prices are substantially cheaper than odeon and vue 2. Wet days even in summer are not fun - go watch a movie!

We've been missing out on local cinema entertainment for some time, but now we have the Lighthouse in Newquay we're loving it! Tuesdays is great for their special £5 offer on tickets. Parking is easy with a car park across the road. Post performance supper at Little Italy just across the road is an absolute must for fabulous pizza. The cinema is a new building so expect light airy spaces and excellent facilities. I found the seats a bit uncomfortable after a while so it would be great to see a few rows swapped for armchair style ones at some point in the future - worthwhile paying extra for a recliner! Expectations well met and a good experience all round.

Thankyou for your comments. We agree that Little Italy do some amazing pre (or post) cinema pizzas! Your comments on chairs have been taken into consideration. Cinema chairs are always a tricky one as people tend to have different opinions of what they would like. Certainly we have tried different style chairs in our other cinemas, and if we decide to refurbish the screens at all it is certainly something we would look into. I'm glad that you are enjoying having a cinema back in Newquay!

We had a great visit, the seats are brilliant and sound effects great but in the foyer there were loads of popcorn on the floor being trodden into the lovely new floor and also sweets, there were three staff behind the counter and although not busy did not clear it up.

Thankyou for your feedback. I am glad that you were happy with the sound quality and the rest of your experience.We do make every effort to keep a clean cinema, although at times the floors do get dirty as I am sure you understand. You rightly point out that staff could have and should have been working on it and your points have been taken on board and hopefully next time you come to visit us you will find it very clean!

A fantastic addition to Newquay, the staff are helpful and the foyer (although feeling like an airport) is clean and well lit.

The food and drinks are expensive but this isn't a surprise for any cinema.

The screens (that I've been in anyway) are of multiplex standard and the seating is comfortable with 'front row' seats for all.

The film left a lot to be desired but we can hardly hold the cinema responsible for that.

I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy the film, but glad that the cinema at least has the thumbs up from you!
