Arc is the NFSA’s premiere venue — a 250 seat state-of the-art screening auditorium perfect for larger conferences, lectures, presentations and award ceremonies.
The cinema is fitted with cutting-edge 35/16 mm changeover projection, using Kinoton projectors chosen for their precision technology and is fully equipped with a variety of video and digital format projection. Arc also has performance lighting and audio systems fully adaptable to live music events. See the complete summary of Arc’s technical specifications for more information.
With its high quality projection, brilliant audio and customised pre-screening light and sound shows the Arc cinema is a truly distinctive experience.
Arc cinema was great for an award presentation for budding 3D Animators. The event team are very professional and the day went without a glitch. The lovely sunny courtyard is an ideal spot for morning tea and lunch breaks. The staff are courteous and helpful… a pleasant experience.
