Volta, Light House Cinema's online partner


We know there’ll be nights when you won’t be at Light House Cinema but you’ll still want to watch a quality film. So, we’ve partnered with Volta, the Irish video on demand website featuring the best Irish and international independent films. We’re sure the Volta catalogue will provide plenty of options for you to watch while you’re not sitting in one of our screens!

Volta focuses on quality Irish and international independent film, which is why we like them so much; in fact, there’s a Light House Cinema Collection, featuring films we’ve shown here in the last few years which you can now watch at home.

Head to or install their Facebook app here.

You’ll find directors like…

Charlie Kaufman, Danny Boyle, Darren Aronofsky, David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, Juanita Wilson, James Ivory, Ken Wardrop, Ken Loach, Lance Daly, Lars Von Trier, Lenny Abrahamson, Mike Leigh, Neil Jordan, Nick Broomfield, Paolo Sorrentino, Quentin Tarantino, Steven Soderbergh, Terry Gilliam, Thomas Vinterberg, Werner Herzog and Steve McQueen among their catalogue.

Why we love it:

  • It’s pay per view and excellent value, with  no joining subscription fees
  • You can browse the full catalogue without having to sign up!
  • You can pay using credit card, Laser or Paypal
  • CinePasses! Bulk buy a block of 5 or 10 rentals which can save you up to 25%. Click here for more info
  • They’re leading the way with ‘Day and Date’ releases, where a film is on their site on the same day as it hits cinemas. Silence, Being Elmo and The Island President were all available on Volta on the same day as we started showing them here
  • There’s a brilliant editorial section, with smart, insightful and meaty articles about film, films and the people who make them
  • We’re true film fans, so the ability to filter and search films in multiple ways (by director, cast, crew, release year, country of origin and genre) means we’ve found lots of films we hadn’t seen in ages!
