We have been here numerous times since it opened. The staff are really helpful and chatty, we really feel like we have had personal service. The screens are nice and big, comfy seats and the sound system is excellent too. We visited twice in the first week and have now got our 'Infinity' cards which are being well used.
Well worth a visit!

Visited this venue on Friday night with a friend to watch Captain America. It was my first time here so wasn't sure what to expect.
We had pre booked tickets online prior to attending for £5. A bargain I thought for a prime Friday night slot. On arrival collected our tickets from the machine which was very swift and joined the que for confectionary.
The que was as to be expected for a Friday night but moved relatively quickly. We selected an offer for £12, which included a large popcorn, 2 regular drinks and a bag of sweets. Quite good value for money I though considering a regular drink and medium popcorn was on offer for £6.60.
We located our screen upstairs which was accessed via an esculator. The screen although not huge was adequately sized with 10 rows. The chairs were very comfortable and had drink holders and trays to put stuff on which made it easier to share items. Better than local cinemas in the area. An added bonus if desired is that all screens are fully licensed so you can purchase alcohol to drink whilst watching your film.
The screen itself seemed to show a good picture, maybe not quite as sharp as some places but if your not that fussed about picture quality this is definitely a good find.
I would highly recommend this place and hope that in time it doesn't loose it's shine with its plush interiors.

Seen this online and thought ..not too far away and £5 a ticket if bought online for Saturday night, give it a try.
Right across from Crown Wharf , a brand new cinema complex, waterfront bars and restaurants, the cinema itself looks bland on the outside but don't be fooled... It is so welcoming and atmospheric inside, there's a lovely bar and all screens are licenced with wine glass holders by your seat, which is very comfy with extra leg room and , I think, steeper sloping as I never once had a head in my view, which I usually get.
We were in screen 5 which was quite cozy but still felt grand. From what I could tell there are special viewings got kids and oaps. Will be our regular cinema from now on even though we paid £4 in the car park we still saved £16 on 4 tickets so well worth it .

The cinema is cool and clean! Prices are cheap if you book online at £5 per head I think it's the cheapest Cinema in Walsall. The chairs are more comfy than any other cinema i have visited in the area! Screen was very clear as well as the sound! Ten out of Ten!

I was pleasantly surprised by the new Light Cinema in Walsall. Went mid afternoon on a Saturday but there was no problem parking right outside (£2 for 3 hours)
We had pre-booked on the Internet so no waiting for tickets, there was a queue for food and drinks but it moved really quickly as they had about 4 or 5 people serving.
The quality of the seating(lush!) , screen and the sound was all fantastic. I have had some hit and miss visits to other cinemas in the last year (Showcase Walsall & also in Birmingham) but this was spot on.
So in summary, we got a good deal on the tickets, its local, better quality than others in Walsall / Sutton, our new favorite cinema, we will definitely be back

Off we went to the new light cinema in Walsall ... 3 adults and 3 kids. We booked online for a viewing at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon. Getting the tickets and food / drinks was no problem and then you take the escalator upstairs where all the cinema screens are located.
The seating is very nice comfy and upholstered rather than the normal leather look and feel.
Unfortunately our little niece found The Jungle Book scary and we had to leave literally 30 mins into the film. The manager and staff were very accomodating by letting me keep 2 car seats in their office for the remaining adult who would need them for her car journey back home as we had left.
We will definately be returning again. Great service.

Lovely to finally see a cinema in Walsall town centre.
Very comfortable and spacious seating and great quality films shown.
Will be visiting regularly, particularly if they continue the £5 ticket deals!

We went to watch Batman vs Superman (which was quite disappointing in my opinion). But the cinema interior was very nice indeed. We pre booked our tickets and at £5 each, they were considerably cheaper than the showcase and cineworld cinema's nearby. The screens were very nice too, although a little on the small side. But the seats were by far the most comfiest seats I've sat on in a cinema yet!
As for picture quality, it was lacking slightly in my opinion, with a grainy image throughout the film - although this may be due to the amount of dark scenes in Batman vs Superman.
All in all a very nice cinema - plenty of options of places to eat nearby too. And staff were very helpful and friendly!
Will definitely be making this cinema our new first choice!

Came here on the weekend to watch The Jungle Book.
If tickets are ordered online you can get the tickets cheaper. £5 per person wasn't too bad, I didn't think so anyways.
I came here as my friend recommended it to me. the staff were polite and friendly. When I first entered I thought it was a little small but when we got to our screen I was pleasantly surprised. It was lovely and clean. the seats were very nice and comfy. there was plenty of leg room the seats were also spacious. I also like the fact that they had little trays so you could put your snacks or your phone on it.
Its a lovely cinema and its not badly priced either, its a very nice comfortable place. the only thing is I hope they people don't mess it up.
Other thing to note is you have to pay for parking up until 6 I think. Would be good if they did discounts on people who did visit the cinema but for me its no biggie.

I couldn't wait to try out the new cinema in Walsall, as I've watched it slowly taking shape over the past few months.
We visited a few weeks ago to see Zootropolis and the whole experience was just how a cinema should be, from the fresh popcorn smell in the foyer to the super-comfy seats.
The staff were warm and welcoming and very friendly. I was surprised that we were allowed the option of choosing our seats, which was a personal touch and ensured that we didn't have any hassle finding a space.
The cinema auditorium itself was spacious and clean (the whole building is spotless), with a huge screen offering an immersive visual and sound experience. The seats are deep and generous, with cup holders for your drinks and ample legroom.
Ticket prices are slightly cheaper than the local cinemas and you get a much better experience for your money.
The location is ideal, close to town centre and bus and train routes and a huge variety of restaurants and shops to explore nearby.
The food and drink were also excellent quality. Toilets absolutely gleaming!
We returned last week to watch Jungle Book and again, had a wonderful time.
Congratulations to the staff, from the front of house greeters to the hardworking cleaners, for making this an experience to remember. We will be back.

Pre booked our seats online for the great price of £5 each!! The Green Room is a lovely touch where you can sit and have a drink whilst waiting for your film and you get complementary nibbles! The seats are mega comfy , more leg room and its licensed so you can take your tipple in with you. The staff were welcoming and friendly. It was immaculately clean throughout.Very , very impressed and will give the multi plex cinemas a run for their money.

The seating, screen, sound system, lighting, food, drinks, bar... all superb! Never too busy. Definitely the go too choice for hitting the flicks!

Screens are brilliant, and for such a reasonable price! Its cheaper for me to travel into walsall for a film in a really nice screen than it is to walk across the road to the cineworld opposite me and watch the same thing. Staff are very helpful. Bar is nice, although i dont know why youd go to the quiz night here, the one at the Brewers opposite is on the same day and much better. But if you go to a cinema to use it as a cinema then its brilliant!

Great staff, great prices and amazing seats! Love how you can get free refills on large popcorn or drinks and how you can take your alcohol into the screens! Nice added touch with the staff introducing the film! Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful cinema. I have recently moved to Walsall from London and I can honestly say that The Light is the best cinema I have been to, especially given the very reasonable prices. The toilets are spotless, the screens are a good size and the seats are very comfortable. I'm looking forward to visiting again very soon. Really impressed.
