Accessibility At Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge

This page explains the current facilities for people with disabilities and is intended to assist you in planning your visit.

Advance Booking

Booking in advance is always a good idea so that our staff can readily provide any assistance you require. Accompanying carers are eligible for a free ticket. We will be pleased to reserve wheelchair spaces or seats in any particular part of the auditorium if this is helpful.

Customers with limited mobility

We cannot remove seats in all three auditoria, but we do have accessible seating in all three. All areas of the cinema are accessible to those with mobility difficulties. The entrance on the right-hand side of the building has step-free access via a lift up to our Box Office and Bar. On this floor you can access a separate lift up to the auditoria. In case of emergency or lift breakdown there are 60 steps down to ground level. We do not have Blue Badge Parking facilities, just local multi-storeys and street parking. We do not have adapted counters.

Visually impaired customers

Films that come with audio description are advertised on our showtimes and we provide headphones that facilitate this function for those films that do. We're happy to provide large print versions of any reading materials or menus, outside of distributor-sent promo materials.

Accessible screenings

We do regular Autism-Friendly screenings and on the third Friday of the month, we have a morning Dementia-Friendly screening.


There is a fully accessible separate toilet on the same level as the Box Office. There is an emergency call-point inside should you need to summon assistance.
