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 building are accessible to visitors with limited mobility, including wheelchair users. There is a lift serving all floors in the main foyer, to the left of the Tickets and Information Point. All screens and galleries are accessible by wheelchair. The Tickets and Information Point, kiosk and bars all have adapted counters and accessible levels for transactions.

Visually Impaired Customers
Guide dogs are welcome at the FACT Centre. 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 bumps on the side 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.

The lift is fitted with tactile aids. It has a telephone should you need to contact a member of staff in an emergency.

Large-print menus and film schedules are available on request.

There are fully accessible adapted toilets on the ground floor, on the second floor near the bar and Gallery 2, and on the third floor adjacent to Screen 2. There is an emergency call-point in each toilet should you need to summon a member of staff.

Disabled Parking
Setting down is best done by drawing alongside the main entrance on Wood Street. There are disabled parking spaces close by on Wood Street and Bold Street, and also to the rear of the building.

In the Event of a Fire
The cinema has several disabled refuges. In each auditorium the wheelchair spaces are next to the exit. A refuge is situated immediately outside each exit. If you would like to be made aware of the location of refuges when you arrive, please ask at the Box Office. Rescue authorities are well briefed on the layout of the building and the location of the refuges, and your rescue will be a priority.


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 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:

  • Disability Living Allowance (DLA);
  • Attendance Allowance (AA);
  • Blind Person Registration;
  • Personal Independance Payment (PIP)
  • Armed Forces Independant Payment (AFIP)

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.

Food and Drink

A state-of-the-art cinema with a modern visual-art space is a match made in heaven, and the Picturehouse @ FACT bar is the perfect place to savour both.

Free Wi-Fi, great teas and coffees, delicious wines and tasty beers are on offer, with a warm and friendly smile from staff who love film, art and great times with equal vigour!

The bar also hosts a wide range of events, from film quizzes to themed nights and acoustic gigs, so keep your eyes peeled and your taste buds ready for an evening to remember – FACT!
