It’s been a long 14 month wait, but film lovers will be able to visit Wolverhampton’s landmark Light House cinema from Friday 11th June when the doors reopen for the first time since the COVID pandemic forced its closure in March 2020.

Light House CEO Kelly Jeffs says:

‘It’s a really exciting week for us here at Light House. The place has come to life as staff are preparing to welcome our customers back. We’ve got a great programme of films lined up, starting this week with Oscar winners Sound of Metal and Nomadland. The schedule for the rest of the year is looking spectacular as the backlog of releases comes through, with blockbusters such as the latest Bond and Marvel films due later in the year, as well as a great selection of independent films and theatre screenings. Arts and culture really helped people through lockdown and will play a vital role in the country’s recovery, and we’re grateful for a safety grant we received from the BFI that has helped us prepare to reopen as a key part of Wolverhampton’s cultural offer. We can’t wait to see the big screen light up. Chatting with our loyal customers is something no one at Light House will take for granted again.’
