Our New Cinema

I am sure that most of our U3A members are now aware that our new cinema, The ARC, is now open and at a difficult time for cinemas in general. Some of you may be still worried about your safety from the virus in the cinemas, but your fears should be allayed by the fact that the government does not require you to wear face coverings in cinemas. Also seating within the cinema is well spaced out to respect social distancing and sanitisation measures within the cinema are extensive.

In respect of the fact that there are no new films currently being released The Arc have reduced their prices to £6.50 whist having to show slightly older films and calling them Summer Classics.

Films commencing before 5.00 p.m. are £4.50 The listing is as follows:-

1917 showing at 5.00 p.m.
Batman Begins £5.20 p.m.
Dirty Dancing at 5.30 p.m.
Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban at 4.45 p.m.
La La Land at 7.50 p.m.
Matrix Reloaded, The at 8.00 p.m.
Onward at 12.00 and 14.30
Peter Rabbit at 12.30 and 2.30
The Conjuring at 8.15 p.m.
The Lego Movie 2 at 12.05 and 2.45
Lord of The Rings – Fellowship of The Ring at 7.45 p.m.
Trolls World Tour at 12.15 and 2.45

For a full description of each film visit their website at www.hucknall.arccinema.co.uk

Reports received from patrons are that seating is excellent with electric recliner upholstered seats, excellent sound and air conditioning. Refreshments are available including alcohol.

Meerkat Movies – I am still trying to understand this but it appears that if you use “Compare The Market” then you can get a 2-for-1 offer. Meerkat ticket offers can only be purchased from the ticket office in the Foyer. All other tickets can be purchased on line or on the phone.

If going by car the nearest car park is the Park n Ride Tram stop (free) also the Market Place and Piggins Croft.
