The cinema will show the latest blockbuster and independent films as well as broadcast screenings of opera, ballet and theatrical productions.
Brian Gilligan of The Arc Cinema says: “We are delighted to be able to confirm finally that we will be opening on March 27th.
“A great deal of hard work has gone into preparing a fantastic cinema in this iconic building and we are certain that the people of Hucknall are going to love what we’ve done”
Recruitment for staff for the new cinema will start later this week.
