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].

BBFC rating information (may contain spoilers)
Occasional moderate violence includes crunchy blows.
Threat and horror
This psychological thriller features a sustained, building sense of threat throughout, culminating in sustained scenes of strong threat involving male aggression towards frightened young women.
There is use of very strong language (‘c**t’), in addition to frequent use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder terms include ‘bitch’, ‘pussy’, ‘prick’, ‘dick’, ‘dickhead’, ‘shit’ and ‘bloody’.
There is a short comic sequence of vigorous thrusting when two people accidentally walk in on a couple having sex. Other scenes feature moderate crude sex references and innuendo, often in the context of sexual harassment.
Scenes of misogynistic behaviour, including sexual harassment and sexual threat, run throughout the film, which is clearly critical of such attitudes.
There are infrequent scenes of, and references to, misuse of marijuana.
Sexual violence and sexual threat
Two women find themselves stranded in an isolated mining town where they are subjected to harassment and increasingly threatening behaviour by male locals. During the strongest scenes, several men repeatedly try to take a drunk and vulnerable woman away in a car, and react with aggression and violence when her friend attempts to intervene.
We see moderate blood and bruising on a person’s face in the aftermath of violence.
We see a cigarette lighter decorated with a photographic image of a topless woman.
Alcohol and tobacco
Heavy drinking is a theme of the film.
