This one is correct.

1) Anyone arriving after the start of the play is not allowed in until the interval.


How about this one? Is it wrong? Or does it mean that the person WAS ARRIVED by someone, so to speak?

2) Anyone arrived after the start of the play is not allowed in until the interval.

    In the sentence you quote, which is grammatically correct), "arriving" = "who arrives".

    In the US, we say intermission, not "interval". It's the time between parts of a performance, such as acts of a play.
