Monday 2 March 2020 The Arc Cinema Hucknall to Open March 27th


The Arc Cinema is delighted to confirm that it will open to the public on Friday March 27th just in time to catch great kids’ films for Easter such as Peter Rabbit and Mulan and of course the mighty James Bond returning in No Time to Die.

The redevelopment works are very close to completion at what was the Byron Cinema on Duke Street, Hucknall and the finishing touches are being applied over the next few weeks.
The Irish cinema operator, The Arc Cinema, is investing £3 million in converting the old Byron Cinema into a state of the art 4 screen cinema.

The cinema will have 425 luxury leather electric recliner seats with masses of legroom, laser digital projection and Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound. Access for all is key to The Arc Cinema’s offer with all screens wheelchair accessible and subtitled screenings, kids’ clubs and parent and baby screenings part of the offer.

The cinema will show the latest blockbuster and independent films as well as broadcast screenings of opera, ballet and theatrical productions. There will be a full range of delicious snacks and drinks on offer and all the screens are licensed so you can enjoy a beer or glass of wine while watching the film.

Brian Gilligan of The Arc Cinema says:
“We are delighted to be able to confirm finally that we will be opening on March 27th. A great deal of hard work has gone into preparing a fantastic cinema in this iconic building and we are certain that the people of Hucknall are going to love what we’ve done”

Recruitment for staff for the new cinema will start this week – week commencing 2nd March and how to apply will be announced on the company’s Facebook page.
