Warwick Arts Centre is one of the largest of its type in the UK. It opened in 1974 and is situated on the University of Warwick campus. The complex includes a 220-seat cinema, the 550-seat Goose Nest theatre, the Butterworth Hall capable of holding up to 1540 in various permutations, the 150-seat Helen Martin Studio space and the Mead Gallery along with several conference rooms. The fare includes theatre, including NT live, comedy, dance, music and visual arts. At the moment film seems to be the staple diet with several being screened each week.

In October 2017 a £17 million three-year programme began to redevelop the Centre, which will include demolition of the cinema and Mead Gallery to create a new building consisting of three auditoria and gallery with a new restaurant, and improvements to foyer areas. The programme is most likely to be connected with the announcement that Coventry will be the City of Culture 2021.

The cinema was equipped for 70mm.

The Warwick Arts Centre cinema, either in the tiny single screen before the rebuild, or in the three screens that replaced it in 2022, has never had 70mm capability. That accolade belongs to the nearby Warwick Student Cinema. It’s also on campus, but nothing to do with Warwick Arts Centre.
