Light House Cinema Cuba Opens

Light House Cinema Cuba Opens
Tuesday 6 November 2012
Light House Cinema Comes to Town

Light House Cinema, currently based in Petone and Pauatahanui, has opened an additional cinema in Wellington’s bohemian Cuba quarter, at 29 Wigan Street opposite Havana Bar. Light House Cuba offers a relaxed luxury cinema-going experience with their winning mix of well-chosen movies, classy theatres with comfy couches, excellent café food and drinks, and friendly service.

The central city purpose-built “mini-plex” houses three large screens which seat 34, 55, and 74 in each. The site was originally built as horse stables in the early 1900’s by Thomas Turnbull and Son and was most recently used by a car valet service before construction began on the new cinema.


Light House owner Simon Werry says “We have long felt that we were a good fit with the discerning and creative Cuba community. We show a diverse range of films, with an emphasis on specifically chosen pieces direct from art-house festivals, along with other thought-provoking or artistic movies. To complete the spectrum of quality entertainment we also include selected mainstream releases. Right now we are looking forward to providing people with another option to see the new James Bond flick Skyfall and The Hobbit.”

“We believe Light House Cuba will not only cater for the inner city community, but also become an attraction from further afield. We are hoping people will make a night of it by coming into town to dine at one of the many restaurants around Cuba Street, visit Light House for a great movie, then grab a desert or drink nearby afterwards.”

Mayor Celia Wade-Brown says this is great news for Wellington's Cuba quarter. "The addition of Light House Cuba's high quality arthouse cinema experience sits perfectly with Wellington's boutique flavour." says Mayor Wade-Brown. "It’s great to see new businesses committing to our city, especially when they embrace Wellington as the Coolest Little Capital in the World.

Light House Cuba Manager Chloe Forbes says “We are also looking forward to supporting the local community with fundraisers, gala evenings and personalised events. We offer a variety of packages for private hires. You can treat your guests to a red carpet premiere or gather your friends for a luxurious night out at the movies. No matter the occasion we enjoy sharing our love of cinema with anyone who visits.”
