Disabled Access

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

Advance Booking
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.

Disabled Parking
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. Orange-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.

Bookings and General Enquiries
Wheelchair spaces and Carers tickets are bookable online. (For Carers Tickets please see Carers section). Alternatively to book wheelchair spaces or carer tickets by phone, or for all other accessibility enquires, please call our dedicated accessibility hotline 02072 947908 (Text Relay call 18001 02072 947908).


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 an annual Carers Card, visit any of our cinemas, call us on 0871 902 5732, or email

Food and Drink

The Greenwich Picturehouse bar is located on the first floor of the cinema and commands superb views over Greenwich High Road and the surrounding area.

Free Wi-Fi, plus first-class teas and coffees served by our attentive, friendly and highly knowledgeable staff, make the bar an ideal place to spend the afternoon!

Our brand new downstairs café bar, the Galley, is officially open!

Whether you’re here to see a show, or just want somewhere to sit back and relax away from the madding crowd, this is the place for you.

With a nod to our local maritime heritage, the beautifully designed space curves gracefully around our on-site galley kitchen, with an open servery running the length of the café.

Our meals and snacks are all prepared from carefully sourced food, including plenty of British produce! We have breakfasts ranging from light pastries to hot food and porridge for the perfect winter warmer. Our lunchtime sandwiches use only the finest ingredients – or why not choose a warm or cold salad, a delicious seasonal British cheeseboard, or a Treflach Farm pork pie? Teatime is all about cakey indulgence, and when dinner time comes around we recommend that you grab a couple of our small plates and a selection of charcuterie to share.

We have hot, cold and alcoholic drinks to suit every mood and taste. Baristas serve our very own fair-trade, small-batch roasted Picturehouse coffee blend all day, and there’s a fantastic variety of wines and craft beers – or how about a cheeky G&T after work?

Not sure what to choose? Just ask our friendly, knowledgeable staff to help you. Cheese and wine pairing is a speciality ­– order a single cheese and we’ll suggest the perfect wine to go with it.
