The Belgrave cinema was established after the closure of the Capitol Theatre in 1983. The cinema was kept alive in Armidale by a group of dedicated people who formed “Friends of the Cinema”.

Their aims were;

· to show films commercially
· encouraging the re-establishment of a permanent theatre in Armidale.

Films were shown at the University of New England by part-time staff and volunteer ushers, averaging 20 screenings per month.

The old UNE Union in collaboration with the Ex-Service Club began the process of building the cinema, and on February 18 th 1995 The Belgrave Twin Cinema was opened.

The Belgrave cinema comprises two auditoriums, The Olympian and Thew Arcadian, with a central foyer. We have three point-of-sale outlets where you can purchase your tickets, with a large and well-stocked candy bar with all the usual cinema favourites such as choc tops (multiple flavours), popcorn, and soft drinks.

The auditoriums currently seat 180 (Olympian) and 108 (Arcadian)

Both auditoriums feature full Dolby Digital Surround Sound, and films are presented via state-of-the-art projection systems.

All seats are generously sized with cup holders and fold up armrests for those that... well.... want to have a snuggle with that special someone.
