The Northern Light Cinema


We love films so we like to think we know what we're doing, bringing a mix of modern and classic, comedy and drama, a spot of sci-fi and just the odd 'soupçon' of horror. Our goal is to bring you the best that the wonderful world of cinema has to offer. Film has the power to engage and inspire, and open our eyes to new possibilities. We're passionate about the cinema experience, and we work hard to make sure our programme is exciting, engaging and inclusive for all.
