The Arc Cinema will open just in time for the bank holiday weekend in May.

The finishing touches are being applied to the eagerly-awaited new asset for Beeston town centre, which includes 700 luxury leather electric reclining seats, laser digital projection and Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound in six of its eight screens.

The remaining two screens will boast the company’s, new to market, giant Hypersense format which uses 4k laser projection and Dolby Atmos to convey the drama of every scene with maximum impact and precision.

Caroline Smith, a local resident and newly appointed manager of The Arc Cinema, is now looking to recruit a team of 20 passionate individuals with a hospitality background and a love of film to deliver a hugely enjoyable leisure experience to the people of Beeston.

Online applications are welcomed via Indeed and on the cinema’s Facebook page.

Caroline said: ''I am really looking forward to lighting up the centre of Beeston with this great new cinema.

"Recent research highlighted that for 59 per cent of the UK population cinema-going is their most missed out of home entertainment activity so we know people are as keen to see us as we are to see them.

"All the relevant Covid-19 restrictions will be in place but we are certain that they won’t detract from the overall experience. We can’t wait to open our doors.''

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.

There is also a café and a bar plus all the screens are licensed so you can enjoy a beer or glass of wine while watching the film.

The cinema will show the latest blockbuster and independent films as well as broadcast screenings of opera, ballet and theatrical productions.
