    Disabled Access

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

    Advance Booking
    Advance booking is always a good idea so that our staff can readily provide assistance if required. 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. Please contact us in advance.

    Customers with Limited Mobility
    All areas of the cinema are accessible to customers with limited mobility, including wheelchair users. A lift gives access to both auditoria, which are on the first floor.
    We have low-level counters at the kiosk for the convenience of wheelchair users.

    Visually Impaired Customers
    Guide dogs are welcome. If you wish to take your dog into a performance, please let us know when booking so that we can arrange an aisle seat. Our staff will be happy to provide drinking water for your dog.

    Our stair rails have bumps underneath to indicate the number of steps approaching each level. Three bumps mean that you are on the third step from the landing, two that you are on the second step, and one that you are on the final step.

    Customers with Impaired Hearing
    Certain performances carry subtitles, and these are clearly indicated in the programme as Hard Of Hearing screenings.

    Disabled Parking
    There are three blue-badge parking spaces at the front of the cinema and another space at the rear parking area. A ramp gives easy access to the entrance.

    There is a wheelchair-accessible adapted toilet on the ground floor. There is an alarm cord inside should you need to summon a member of staff.

    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 5747, or email

    Our stunning harbourside location makes our bar the ideal place to start and finish the evening.
