Disabled Access

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

Our Box Office is fully accessible and is situated in the foyer. The cinema screens are situated on the top floor and are fully accessible via lift, with wheelchair access in every screen. The Box The café (run by Leaf) is on the ground floor, and the bar on the first floor (run by Picturehouse) - both are fully accessible. The galleries on the ground and first floor are fully accessible. Accessible toilets are available on each floor.

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.

Services for Deaf or Hearing-Impaired Customers

  • All our cinemas have infra red units mounted at the front of the auditorium which send signals to our headphones and body packs. See individual sheets for further information. Guests with hearing aids with the ‘T’ position option are recommended to use the body pack which creates a personal induction loop which picks up the hard of hearing enhanced soundtrack. We also have a portable induction loop system at our Box Office tills and main retail tills.
  • We provide regular captioned screenings of films when available. Captioning is a service for hearing-impaired or deaf people. These screenings have a transcription of the film’s dialogue in English along the bottom of the screen and may also describe the sounds in the film. We aim to show 3 per week, dependent on availability.
  • Our programme also contains many films subtitled into English from other languages. These may also be suitable for deaf or hearing-impaired customers.
  • Films and events available with caption subtitles are noted on our website listings and in print.
  • A small returnable deposit of £5 (or ID – driving license) is taken. This is not a charge for rental but to ensure safe return of the equipment.

Services for Blind or Partially Sighted Customers

  • Listings are available in larger print.
  • All Cinemas are equipped with infrared audio description equipment. Audio described screenings are similar to listening to a cricket or football match on the radio, having the action described to you. The normal film soundtrack comes through the cinemas surround sound speakers in the usual way, and a recorded narrator explains what’s happening on screen – in gaps in the dialogue and sound effects – through special headphones that allow the user to still hear the sound from the speakers.
  • Please note audio description has to be actively produced by the film distributors who have to decide to pay someone to write and record the audio description track. Some distributors (Warner Brothers for example) have a policy of providing AD (and subtitles) for all their films. Others distributors may never provide this service.
  • Films and events available with audio description, caption subtitles, are noted on our website listings and in print.
  • A small returnable deposit of £5 (or ID – driving license) is taken. This is not a charge for rental but to ensure safe return of the equipment.
  • 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.

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.

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
