This page explains the facilities for people with disabilities and is intended to assist you in planning your visit.
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.
Customer with Limited Mobility
All areas of the building are accessible to customers with limited mobility, including wheelchair users. The Box Office, Screen One and the Café are on the ground floor and have level access from the street. 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.
There is no lift access to the Screen 5 in the basement Customers with limited mobility are asked to contact a member of staff to use the stair lift. We can remove seats in each of the auditoria to accommodate a wheelchair. We recommend that you telephone in advance to confirm availability and book your space. The Box Office and bars all have adapted counters and accessible levels for transactions.
Visually Impaired Customers
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.
Customers with Impaired Hearing
There is an induction loop in the Box Office and infrared facilities in all four screens and the basement Screening Room. To use the infrared system please ask for receiving equipment at the Box Office. You will be asked for a credit card or a £5.00 deposit for the equipment, which will be fully refunded on its return at the end of the screening. Certain performances carry subtitles and these are clearly indicated in the programme.
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.
Setting down is best done by drawing alongside the main entrance on Greenwich High Road. There is a dipped pavement for access close to the front door of the building. Blue-Badge holders can park for free in the Burney Street car park at the rear of the building and there are three dedicated spaces for people with disabilities.
In the Event of an Emergency
Greenwich Picturehouse has several 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.
In the event of a suspected emergency our staff will ask customers with limited mobility on the first floor to move to a refuge point before evacuating the auditoria and bar. Once the stairs are clear we will return to help you down the stairs. Evacuation chairs are provided to help with emergency exit, should you want to use one.
The stair lift from Screen 5 has an independent power supply and can be used by customers with limited mobility for emergency exit once the stairs are clear.
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.

Our cinema has increasingly become a great place to eat and drink – the Galley downstairs being the catalyst.
The Galley has certainly made a name for itself, and is an especially popular place to kick-start your day. The breakfast offerings have been causing quite a stir. Morning thirsts can be quenched in any way your heart desires, with a generous range of loose-leaf teas, coffee and mouthwatering new smoothies and milkshakes. Specialities such as the salted caramel French toast fly out of the kitchen. Not many breakfasts forego eggs and, however you like them – including Benedict and Florentine – the Galley can make them.
But any time is a good time to come drink and dine, with our superb menu tailored for mornings, afternoons and evenings. Delicious sandwiches, stews and salads – from Caesar to quinoa, to name just a few – hint at the variety available.
You name the drink, the Galley and upstairs bar have it, from Champagnes and wines to coconut cocktails and award-winning beers.
Our upstairs bar with its iconic panoramic window front continues to be an ideal spot to relax and unwind as you take in the views, whether you’re coming for a film or not. Look out for ‘the purple wall’, which always has fabulous local art on show.
Upstairs or down, you’re guaranteed a great atmosphere and one of the best places to eat and drink in Greenwich.
