The Light Cinema

Film + Bar + Food

We‘re sad to announce that we’ve made the hard decision to temporarily close our Thetford cinema until further notice.

Despite our best efforts to keep all of our sites open, 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.

With regret, we are announcing that with immediate effect, our site at Thetford will temporarily close. 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.
