  • Bentley Bridge..CineWorld
  • Hold On...Y are ppl saying that wednesfield is rough?!! By Cineworld! OH PLEASE! Where are you from really?! Wednesfields fine!! Cineworldz safe, and bentley bridge is easy! Stop chatting crap!
  • cineworld in wednesfield
  • showcase in bentley or cineworld in wednesfield
  • The Lighthouse occasionally has some really good films. More the arty type than blockbusters. Nice atmosphere there.
  • Bently Bridge, but it's depressing. I would do the treck to Merry Hill given the choice to be honest.
  • Cineworld, at Bentley Bridge. Quite a good cinema and conveniently located next to Nickleodeon Pub (decent food, sometimes), Pizza Hut, MacDonalds and KFC.
  • Cineworlds OK but i prefer showcase in Bentley, probably cause all my mates go there and not because theres anything wrong with Cineworld.
  • cineworlds cool n da choice of films is quite gd
  • notable only for their complete absence. lighthouse is a good lil independant cinema now tho
  • Cineworld
  • Light House Cinema in Wolverhampton city centre has now been open full time again (hurray!) for about 3 years after a refurbishment and relaunch. Light House shows a mixture of new releases and old/cult classics and hosts film talks, festivals, special seasons and events. There's a diverse mix of films such as (in Winter 2003) Young Adam, Pirates of the Caribbean, Life & Debt, City of God, Kill Bill, Mystic River, Calendar Girls and Bowling for Columbine and special screenings of cult classics like Wildstyle, Donnie Darko, Straw Dogs and The Rocky Horror Picture Show With a relaxed and intimate atmosphere and screenings of films that often haven't been shown at the multiplex Light House is definitely worth a visit. Plus - tickets are cheap on Wednesdays - just 3
  • The Cineworld is decent. The staff are not always very helpful though. And its sometimes pretty busy. The lighthouse is worse though.
  • Cineworld has a very cramped seating plan. But other than that it is a good place to go watch a film(of course. I don't think I'd go out of my way to go there.
  • cineworld wednesfield - 15 screens
  • The Lighthouse shows real classics and the really good stuff thats only ever on video. Go see them on big screen. Well worth a visit. Check whats on before going.
  • Quasar's been taken down, so only decent place to go is Cineworld, but be careful getting there as you might find yourself at the bottom of the canal, or swamped by bunces of spotty 14yr old girls. trying to sneak in to the newest 15 rated film.
  • Cineworld at the multiplex in Wednesfield is an 80's horror, and more regularly used as a pick-up spot for local delinquents than a cinema. If you want to see some good, independent films, try the Lighthouse cinema in the Chubb buildings in the centre.
  • The theatre's quite good as well.
  • bugger all ... Go to UCI in Merry Hill
  • The cinemas just out of town are much nicer than where I live and the seats are actually comfy.
  • Lighthouse Cinema in the Chubb building - it may be small and too loud, but at least they show art and underground films you won't see at the multiplex
  • Cineworld is good, 14 screen cinema and great service and facilities too.
  • cineworld bently bridge got everthing a cinema should have 4get the lighthouse
  • Cineworld is good, popcorn's not so good though.
  • Not much cinema-wise for fans of more alternative films. Wulfrunians tend to accept the constant barrage of Hollywood drivel at places like Cineworld.
  • Lighthouse @ Chubb building, although it only shows films every thurs. night now.
  • Cineworld at Wednesfield, is the best out-of-town cinema in the area. The bowling alley near St Johns Retail Park is better than the one in Bushbury. The Lighthouse cinema is a bit different, they break half way through the film, allowing arty student types to talk bollocks during the interval !
  • The only reason that the Lighthouse was closed is because no one supports what it does. They cant justify applying for grants all the time if the money is not coming back in. There's some great stuff comin' up though, like "The Wicker Man" on Hallow'een night...with a free glass of virgins blood...bonus
  • The arty Light House have now (Spring 2000) stopped showing films except on Thursdays. The town's other mainstream cinema has an Art Wednesday now, but recently their idea of an art film was Star Wars - Episode 1 !
  • Just thought I'd mention Cineworld, as I havent seen anyone mention it. It's pretty big, and theres loads of places to eat. And theres the amazing Health Land which you can spend hours teasing all the people exercising, with a hamburger and fries. Why do they have giant windows so you can see inside?
  • If you can afford to hire an armoured car and a police escort then you might just make it alive to watch all the blockbustery type films and screen fillers at cineworld, plus some hilarious bollywood offerings
  • Strykers is good for bowling and has disabled access, complete with lift. Unfortunately to get to the bowling lanes you must first navigate two steps (one down, one up)with no RAMPS to assist.
  • cineworld, wednesfiels, cross hospital
  • When i lived in wolves the only place to go was at crappy merry hill, but i've heard things are better now. Is this true?
  • Cinemania - sprawling multiplex in the roughest area of town, leave your car if you want to do an insurance job Lighthouse - arty 2 screen, now closed unfortunately, wolverhampton people can't sustain intellectual thought for that long obviously
  • There's a big new multiplex by New Cross hospital (not such a good area of town though). Alternatively, there's another multiplex at Telford half an hour or so down the M54
