ARC’s policy is to set ticket prices based on demand, like budget airlines, which means we set a price when the event goes on sale and then sometimes put the price up or down depending on how the show is selling. Usually, the price will increase as we get closer to the event, so it is advantageous to book in advance, although sometimes we will put special offers on and reduce the price. Our website will always show the current ticket price.
ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.

Information about screenings with descriptive subtitles
Descriptive subtitles, sometimes referred to as subtitles for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing people or captions, transcribe dialogue and relevant aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects, attempting to give D/deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers an equal experience to those who are able to watch films without descriptive subtitles. Descriptive subtitles would include speech identifiers and descriptive elements such as [door slamming] and [kettle whistling].

Two men fight in a scene which includes heavy blows, and which ends with one of the men holding the other’s head over a broken window pane before another man steps in to prevent further injury.
Threat and horror
The case appears to involve a supernatural context, and there are jump scares, including the sudden appearance of a dead girl. During a seance, a female medium speaks with a dead girl’s voice. A man hears what appears to be the sound of ghostly children singing. In an abandoned cellar, rats briefly crawl over children’s toys, and there is also brief sight of bees swarming out of a skeleton’s mouth. There are references to children locked inside a palazzo where they were left to die, and also to the children seeking revenge on the doctors and nurses who they believed were responsible for their fate.
The film contains mild bad language (‘shit’, ‘bastard’), as well as other terms (for example, ‘God’, ‘Christ’, ‘damn’, ‘hell’). There is use of the term ‘loony’.
There are references to an hallucinogenic poison. A boy asks his father whether he requires a pill.
There is brief sight of scratch marks on a woman’s body.
It is occasionally speculated that a girl took her own life, often accompanied by sight of her falling into the water. A man explains how he shot himself in the chest whilst he was traumatised after liberating a German concentration camp at the end of World War II.
A man talks about the distress of “nursing skeletons back to life” when he liberated a concentration camp, and says he inadvertently killed two survivors by feeding them milk. There are brief scenes in which a dead girl is hauled from a canal, as well as upsetting references to a girl wasting away in bed.
