New Community Cinema opens at Liverpool Lighthouse Dec 3rd

Liverpool Lighthouse is bringing cinema back to Anfield with a sing-a-long performance of The Greatest Showman on December 3rd at 2pm. Tickets are FREE as we celebrate the return of cinema to the old Gaumont Palace on Oakfield Road, now home of Liverpool Lighthouse.

Built in the 1930s the cinema building entertained generations of families and communities until it closed in 1960. In 1998, Liverpool Lighthouse purchased the building and re-opened it as an arts and community centre. Now, with support from community members who contributed to our Crowdfunder, The Liverpool City Region Mayor's Fund, the LFC Foundation and the National Lottery Reaching Communities' Awards for All fund we are bringing a joyful, local, fun-filled cinema experience back for a new generation.

The first performance will be free, although audiences will be able to buy popcorn, pick'n'mix and drinks at reasonable prices in the building on the day, which along with our new screen and cinema quality projector will create a full cinema experience right in the centre of Anfield. Fancy dress will also be encouraged!

The Anfield Community Cinema at Liverpool Lighthouse aims to bring together families and communities across generations to enjoy a cinema experience together, so we will be keeping our ticket prices low.

There will be 2 free events before Christmas and after Christmas we will launch our 2023 programme, which will include films for the whole family, films with local interest, films celebrating the talents and experiences of diverse communities and special screenings for schools.

If you would like to be kept informed about the cinema programme, please email and ask to be added to the mailing list for the cinema and we can keep you up to date with what's coming up.
