The £8m Thetford Riverside leisure complex brings a brand new cinema, hotel, and series of restaurants to Thetford. It is a development which has been delivered by Breckland Bridge, an innovative joint venture between Breckland Council and The Land Group. The regeneration project is a key part of the council's vision for Thetford and will act as a catalyst for further development in the town and across the district. For more information on the Project please Thetford Riverside Development.
The Light Cinema opened to the public in December 2016. Visitors are able to enjoy its extra wide and extra comfy seating in each of the three, fully licensed screens, which all boast incredible 2D and 3D visuals with state of the art digital picture and sound. The cinema also has a café and bar so you can enjoy a coffee, light snack, glass of wine or a beer before or after your blockbuster movie, art-house film, or screening of a ballet, opera or theatre performance.
