The cinema light box: The most sought after light of all

Light up your life with the most sought after light of all...the fantastically retro Cinema Light Box. Perfect for house parties, weddings or any other occasion, these quirky little boxes are taking over homes everywhere and in recent months, have become a widespread trend phenomena.

With 69 letters and symbols to choose from, the possibilities are endless. There's also 6 blank tiles included to create your own characters. The intimate lighting provided by a cinema light box adds a perfectly vintage ambience while also bringing the magic of the movies into your home. They're battery operated too, so the light box can be placed on any surface without the need to be near a plug socket, or the hassle and untidiness of wires.

Need inspiration on how to style your cinema light box?

Here at Utility we've been scouting Instagram for our favourite cinema light box, styling and messaging...

Work your cinematic light box into every day activities and add a little quirk to a night in with friends.

Cinema light boxes can be used as part of social media messages, marking important milestones, or simply to give someone a message.

Thank You Messages

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
