Overlooking the marina at Ocean Village this stunning glass fronted building is without doubt the most comfortable and stylish place to watch films in the Southampton area. It opened on 24th February 1995 with the Australian film “Muriel’s Wedding”
The glass fins on the front and the CINEMA rooftop sign are strongly reminiscent of the classic art deco cinemas of the thirties.
Seating capacities in the auditoriums are 325 and 141.
Voted Best Loved Independent Cinema by Empire readers in 2000, this award winning building houses two state-of-the-art screens (each with Dolby SR sound) which show the very best in Hollywood, world and independent cinema.
The City Council closed the Harbour Lights cinema suddenly in early 1999 and it stayed empty until taken over by Picturehouse Cinemas in September 1999.
Southampton has two other cinemas, the six screen UGC (almost next door to the Harbour Lights) which is a rather shabby looking late eighties multiplex, and the more recent Odeon 12 screen in the city centre.
