This page explains the current facilities for people with disabilities and is intended to assist you in planning your visit.
Advance booking by telephone, post, fax, online or through a friend is always a good idea so that our staff can readily provide any assistance you require. Seats are usually reserved for performances after 6.00. However, we will be pleased at any time to reserve wheelchair spaces or seats for any particular part of the auditorium if this is helpful for customers with disabilities.
We also recommend booking a table if you plan to have a meal in our brasserie, which can be done in person or on 01603 623 435 / 07504 356378.
Customers with Limited Mobility
All areas of the building are accessible to customers with limited mobility, including wheelchair users. There is level access to the brasserie through the courtyard entrance on St Andrew’s Hill. This entrance also gives level access to the lift, which will take you to the Box Office (on the upper ground floor), Screen 1 (first floor), Screens 2 and 3 (basement) and the toilets (top floor).
We can remove seats in each of the auditoria to accommodate wheelchairs. There are six spaces in Screen 1, two spaces in Screen 2 and one space in Screen 3. We recommend that you telephone to confirm availability and book a space to avoid disappointment when you arrive.
The Box Office has an adapted counter with an accessible level for transactions for wheelchair users.
Guide dogs are welcome at Cinema City. 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.
There is a fully accessible separate toilet on the top floor and on the basement level for wheelchair users. There is an emergency call point inside should you need to summon assistance.
Assisted Hearing Facilities
There are infrared facilities in all three screens. To use the infrared system, please ask for receiving equipment at the Box Office.
Certain performances carry subtitles, and these are clearly indicated in the programme.
In the Event of an Emergency
Cinema City has several disabled refuge points. If you would like to be made aware of the location of refuge points when you arrive, please ask a member of staff.
In the event of a suspected emergency our staff will ask customers with limited mobility in Screen 1 to move to a refuge point before we evacuate the auditorium. Once the stairs are clear we will return to help you down the stairs.
There is also a refuge on the top floor, outside the disabled toilet.
Customers who have a disability that means that they need a companion with them in the cinema can bring them to any Picturehouse Cinema for free.
You can sign up for a Carers Card which will automatically discount one of your tickets, and which you can use – without a booking fee – when buying tickets in person, online or by telephone. The card will also mean that you don’t have to explain your situation every time you visit the cinema.
Ticket prices for customers with disabilities are according to their circumstances (e.g. adult, Member or student); the free ticket applies to their companion. The card must be used in conjunction with a paid-for ticket or a Member’s free ticket.
All customers for 3D screenings – including those using free tickets – will need to buy a pair of 3D glasses. These can be reused if you keep them.
Signing up for a card is not required, but we hope it will make buying tickets easier. It is personal to you, and may not be used by other people.
To apply for a Picturehouse carer card, please take proof of eligibility to your nearest Picturehouse and a member of the team will set up your card. If you need additional information or advice please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our customer service hotline on 020 7326 2649
The eligibility criteria are kept under review and may be updated from time to time; currently, people who receive one of the following benefits are eligible:
Additionally, limitations placed on Cinemas by their local licenses require children and young people under 8 years of age to be accompanied by a responsible person; consequently, applications for cards can only be considered for people who are 8 years of age or older.
At Cinema City we offer a wide range of events and activities for schools, colleges and adult learners, both at the cinema and around the county. Cinema Plus provides opportunities for both formal and informal learning, and it is our belief that these opportunities should not be limited in terms of age, ability or access. Most importantly, we believe education should be enjoyable.
Cinema Plus, the film education programme at Cinema City, has received development funding from the Heritage Lottery fund for Norfolk at the Pictures, a project to collect and preserve the heritage of cinemagoing in Norfolk and to create a new Screen Heritage Centre at Cinema City.
How You Can Get Involved
Norfolk at the Pictures wants you contribute your memories, photographs, films and cinema memorabilia. All of the memories will be collected, exhibited and preserved through a variety of methods, including a commemorative publication and an online project.
