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.

The film revolves around an old man, in an Indian village, who is addicted to pornography and watches them along with his friends. One fine day, he accidentally brings home a DVD having a Godard film in place of a porn film. Though his friends were disgusted, he was attracted by the newness of the film. He then started renting Godard’s films and started gaining interest. Later he calls his friends and decides to organize a film festival on Godard in their village. The idea seemed quite absurd to many, but ultimately the festival happens but has an unexpected ending.
Filled with moments of humor and satire, amidst a cross-cultural context the film is a vivid portrayal of rural India and its characters (the film is based in Odisha, in eastern India, which is largely unseen to the rest of the world).
In Oriya, with English subtitles.
