Even with our neon sign on display you might have missed that ARC is home to Teesside’s only independent cinema.
Whether you’re looking for an alternative to the multiplex or just need somewhere local to enjoy the freshest films, our intimate 131 seat screen has you covered. Our fully equipped digital cinema has great visual and sound quality, providing an immersive environment for you to get lost in the world on screen – you might even forget the rest of the audience are there with you.
What’s even better, you can get comfortable and indulge in a beer or wine while the film’s on, with a great selection available from our No 60 cafe bar.
We aim to show the best variety of films from the latest star-studded thrillers, to lesser known award contenders and winners, great British independent cinema, and films from around the world that won’t just transport you to far away places, they’ll change the way you see the world too.
From time to time we’ll have writers, directors, producers and more popping by to talk about their work, or panels of experts helping us dissect some of the most exciting and thought provoking new work available on screen.
You’ll also find a regular selection of family films, live screenings including broadcasts from National Theatre Live, and specialist screenings including powerful documentaries making an appearance.
We show many of our films with descriptive subtitles for those who are D/deaf or Hard of Hearing and offer Audio Description facilities wherever possible for the visually impaired, and we’re always happy to have a friendly chat about any access requirements you have.
You’ll find our cinema underground, but it’s honestly not a secret, so don’t forget to tell your friends and let us know what you thought with #StocktonCinema
