Belgrave Cinema is located at 137 Dumaresq Street in Armidale, just up the road from the Armidale Ex-Services Club.

The distributor of a film will stipulate NO FREE TICKETS on selected films for a set duration. This restriction will not apply to the entire season of a film - usually only weeks 1 and 2. Check our programme schedule to ensure you will not be disappointed.

Dolby technologies put you in the centre of your movie-going experience. You will hear five full-range discrete channels, plus a subwoofer channel that covers the bottom one-tenth of the audible range - these are the technologies that create the experience. The dynamic range (the ratio of the loudest sounds to the softest) is significant and the full-range surround channels make lifelike special effects possible-think helicopters flying overhead. And the subwoofer sound can often be felt as well as heard.

It is our policy to ensure we offer a wide range of films covering most audiences and genres. With programming, however, we are governed by the Official release dates of the Distributors films and the number of times that we are required to screen that film per day, and when. This can mean that occasionally we are unable to fit in all the wonderful and diverse content that the community would like to see.

Absolutely! Belgrave Cinema offers Adult, Student, Child & Senior Gift Vouchers and can be purchased over the phone or in person.

The length of time any film will play at Belgrave Cinema is based on the amount of business the film generates, contractual obligations and time of the year. Basically, the more popular a film is with patrons, the longer it will play. There is no way to predict exactly how long a movie will play. Use our website to get information on what films will be playing up to seven days in advance.

Absolutely! Cinema advertising at Belgrave Cinema is one of the most cost effective forms of advertising. Many local businesses are benefiting from their business name being on the big screen telling their message to a captive audience.

Once session times are listed on our website, tickets can be purchased from the box office in advance of the film's opening. We recommend for the most popular films, during the weekends and holidays, that you plan to arrive 20-30 minutes prior to the advertised start time or drop in during the day and purchase early.
