Lighthouse to shine in Newquay


Newquay’s forthcoming new four-screen cinema complex has officially been named.

Lighthouse Cinema, Newquay is due to open in the late spring and will generate 25 new jobs in the town.

It will be the first purpose-built fully-digital cinema in the south west and will seat more than 650 people.

Commenting on the name announcement, Mark Williams from WTW Cinemas said: “With the external appearance of the building, we felt that Lighthouse Cinema represented a good name for Newquay.

“It’s a modern and contemporary one for a state-of-the-art building and we’ve tried to move away from more traditional cinema names that have been used before, both in the town and across Cornwall. The new cinema is a really important part of the changing nature of Newquay and will bring a family-friendly facility which we very much hope will be a shining light in the area.”

Family-run business WTW Cinemas owns and operates cinemas in Truro, St Austell and Wadebridge.
