To launch its autumn schedule, Light House Media Centre in Wolverhampton is giving cinema goers a chance to visit a film for only £3 on a Saturday during the month of September.

"This is a chance to show people what is on their doorstep for a great Saturday night out" says Marketing and Events manager Julie Homfray. "September has a fabulous line up of films for all tastes, from Gemma Bovery to Straight Outta Compton, plus we have an iconic bar from which visitors can take their drinks into a film."

The autumn line up also includes an unmissable season of "Thinema", where world class theatre, ballet and opera can be experienced on screen via satellite. Starting this Thursday, 3rd September, when National Theatre Live present 'The Beaux' Stratagem', an 18th century comedy in which two Londoners flee to Lichfield in the hope of marrying for money. Further autumn titles range from The Rocky Horror Show Live on 17th September to the highly anticipated live streaming of Benedict Cumberbatch in National Theatre Live's Hamlet and Chris O'Dowd in 'Of Mice and Men'. There will also be themed refreshments in the 'Blitz Bar' to celebrate the BBC 'Battle of Britain at 75' commemorations on 18th September.

Over the summer, events in Lock Works CafĂ© Bar and the courtyard have seen a boost in attendance, ranging from Comedy to Language Cafes, where linguists of all levels socialise and celebrate the use of language, from English to Portuguese. 

By popular demand, the free Jazz in the Courtyard sessions are being joined by a monthly Acoustic session in the courtyard,where visitors can enjoy a drink and hear the best of local singer-songwriters and acoustic bands.

Programmes can be collected from the Box Office in The Chubb Buildings, at venues and libraries across the city or customers can be emailed a monthly listing sheet by contacting
