New Cinema Guide September - October 2019

#DCAcinema

23 August 2019

Our new Cinema Guide has just arrived in the building, packed with exciting new films, documentaries, family films and cinema events. Bringing a new selection of films to you every six weeks or so is a pleasure, and we love to see you responding to the news of what cinematic delights are on their way to you with each guide.

Alongside these lovely films, you may also notice that we’ve made the decision to put some of our prices up. We review our pricing at least once a year, and it’s never an easy decision to make changes: keeping ticket prices as low as possible is very important to us.

But the costs of screening these films are continuing to rise, from the fees we pay to film distributors to ticketing fees, staffing costs and film delivery, so every so often we need to make a change to pricing accordingly.

We have a very loyal audience of over 60s, who are incredibly important to us, and we’re delighted to be able to now offer concessions at all times in response to audience feedback. To make this possible, and without it having a negative financial impact, we have had to increase the price slightly. 

Our student and youth tickets have also increased slightly, but we have kept costs as low as we possibly can.

This means that for films screening from Fri 30 August, our prices will be as follows:

All week 
£7 before 17:00 
£8 from 17:00*

Over 60s
£6 before 17:00 
£7 from 17:00

Students and under 18s
£5.50 all day

Claimants (Jobseekers Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, Housing Benefit)
£5 all day

Disability 
Free carer’s ticket on production of valid CEA card

*There are some pricing exceptions, please check individual film listings for more information.

Our new Cinema Guide is now available, with films including The Souvenir, The Farewell, The Goldfinch and Judy: we hope we’ll see you in the cinema for some of these soon.

The Guide is introduced by our Head of Cinema, Alice Black:

"As we say goodbye to the lazy days of summer and hello to crisp chill of autumn, there’s a sense in the air of everyone getting back to routines and preparing for the winter months ahead. While your days might now be taken up with sorting out school runs, getting to grips with a new Uni timetable, or tidying up the garden, we also hope that you’ll have time for a visit to your local independent cinema. This is the cinema team’s favourite time of year – the shorter days and colder weather can mean only one thing in our minds – never having to feel guilty about staying indoors to watch a film.

For students just starting on their degree journey, welcome to Dundee! For those of you returning to resume your courses, welcome back! We hope you find a little respite (but not a distraction mind!) from your studies and hard work in our cinemas over the coming year. Student tickets for all the standard screenings in this guide cost just £5.50 all day, every day, so you can enjoy a film without blowing the budget.

What I love most about this current guide is that without even leaving Dundee, you can travel to different corners of the world and learn that despite our differences, we share so many similarities. One of the themes that revealed itself while I was putting this selection together was the importance of families, of all shapes and sizes, in our lives. From war-torn Syria (For Sama) to the Manor House (Downton Abbey) and from best mates (Animals) to inter-generational relationships (The Farewell), the bonds that we create together support us through the pitfalls of life. And in the same way, we hope that you find your cinema home at DCA – a place where you can relax, be yourself and belong, wherever you come from."

We look forward to seeing you at the cinema soon. Don't forget to tell us which films you're enjoying using the hashtag #helloDCA - you could win free cinema tickets!
