Light Houe Cinema - Cinemas in Dublin

The Light House Cinema re-opened its doors on the 20th of January 2012 under the management Element Pictures. One of Dublin's most unique cinemas in Dublin, since the cinema re-opened we have been heartened by the enthusiastic and positive response we have had from audiences who have returned in their droves.  The Light House Cinema, having existed in a previous incarnation, our plan for the cinema is to slowly improve all elements, from food and drink in the café to launching a full bar, lighting changes, more events, eclectic programming and a consistently open, approachable and knowledgeable public voice. We are keenly aware of the importance of carving out our ‘niche’ within the current cinemas in Dublin, but we don’t see ourselves as a niche destination or brand. Our aim is to become a cinema in the minds of national & international visitors not just those in our immediate catchment area.

ARTINFO World’s Coolest Movie Theatres


“Reopen and better than ever; the lighthouse is the perfect counter point to the IFI -- sassy, vibrant and risk-takey, they crowd source ideas for programming and their movies flit between 80s pop culture gold, modern indie and the odd blockbuster. Look out for the odd gallery show there too. Great to have you back in business, Lighthouse. Oh, it's also probably the prettiest cinema you ever did see.”
Google Reviewer, June 2012


“Since its re-opening its gone from strength to strength…They always have a great selection of movies, a nice mix of art-house and classic cinema. I just really love this place and I'm so happy that they were able to re-open. It breathes new life and possibilities into Smithfield.”
