Frequently Asked Questions


  • + Who do I talk to about hiring an auditorium at the Belgrave Cinema?

  • To hire the auditorium please fill out this form and one of our team will be with you shortly.



  • + Where can I find the Belgrave Cinema?

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

  • + What does "No free list" mean?

  • 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 or speak with one of our team to ensure you will not be disappointed.

  • + How do I unsubscribe or change my profile details for Belgrave Cinema newsletter?

  • You can update your email address or unsubscribe by logging into your account, you'll find the "Log In" button in the top right hand corner of the Belgrave home page.

  • + What does "Dolby Digital" sound mean?

  • 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.

  • + Why isn't a certain movie playing at Belgrave Cinema?

  • 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.
