There is a lift in the main foyer for access to Screens Two, Three and Four and the disabled toilet. Access to the disabled toilets is by Radar key provided by a member of staff.

Guide dogs are welcome at the Greenwich Picturehouse. If you wish to take a dog into a performance, please let us know when booking so we can arrange an aisle seat. Alternatively, your dog can be cared for by a member of staff for the duration of the performance. Our staff will be happy to provide drinking water for your dog. Our stair rails have embossed tactile aids, which indicate the steps approaching each level. Three bumps mean that you are on the third step from the landing, two bumps mean that you are on the second step and one that you are on the final step.
Certain performances carry subtitles and these are clearly indicated in the programme, these take place on Fridays, Mondays and Wednesdays.
There are fully accessible separate toilets on the ground floor and first floor for wheelchair users. There is an emergency call-point inside should you need to summon assistance.

Autism-Friendly Screenings are screenings which create an environment that is welcoming for people with a range of conditions such as autism, learning disabilities and cognitive disorders. Sound levels are turned down, the lights are left on at a low level and there are no trailers or adverts at the beginning of the film. Audience members are welcome to take a break from the screen, make noise and move around as needed. Autism-Friendly screenings run on the third Sunday of each month and tickets are £3 per person.
Greenwich Picturehouse has three disabled refuge points, with a call-point to speak to the emergency services. If you would like to be made aware of the location of refuge points when you arrive, please ask a member of staff.
