Back to Relax Visiting Market Place Centre

The Light is a brand new, state-of-the-art nine screen Cineplex within the Market Place Shopping Centre. The cinema is state-of-the-art boasting comfy seating and extra leg room space for a super comfortable experience.

Whether you’re a hopeless romantic, sci-fi fan or love to be scared senseless, The Light Cinema will be offering a range of viewing experiences. From big-screen blockbusters, world cinema to independent films in a smaller, more intimate setting, there is sure to be something for everyone. Parking is FREE for up to 4.5 hours during the daytime and only £10 thereafter, just remember to validate your ticket at the counter.

Don’t forget that parking at Market Place after 5pm is completely FREE!

Wait, there’s more! The Light comes a plush new, fully licensed café bar, so make sure you’re seen at the hottest social scene in town. Not only this, but you too can hire out a screen and showcase your film making talents.

Dementia Friendly Screenings - Just £5 per ticket PLUS Carers go free!

Did you know that The Light Cinema provides regular dementia-friendly screenings? There are no adverts or trailers and the lighting is slightly raised throughout the film.

We’re sad to announce that we’ve made the hard decision to temporarily pause The Light cinema until further notice.

Despite our best efforts, the recent delays of film releases by the US studios and the lack of ongoing support for cinemas by government, means that we are now in a position where this is no longer possible.

We are hugely grateful for the support of our team, guests and loyal Infinity members, who adapted to the changing rules with generosity of spirit and showed that cinema was still to be enjoyed. For Infinity members, the scheme is suspended along with all direct debits until further notice.

We truly believe in the big screen experience and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as conditions allow. In the meantime, we realise this is a tough time for our country and our thoughts are with everyone affected by this, including our team members, those in other cinema businesses and in other sectors.
