Disabled Access

This page explains our 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. Seating is not allocated at all screenings, but we will be pleased to reserve seats for any particular part of the auditorium whenever possible – please ask us in advance.

Customers with Limited Mobility
Screen 1 is on the ground floor, and is accessible for wheelchair users. There is one designated wheelchair viewing position. An usher will guide customers to this location.

Screen 2 is on the first floor, and can only be accessed up a staircase of 32 steps.

However, we do try to show each film in both screens over the course of its run, in order to ease access. For information on which screen a particular show is playing in, click on the performance time.

We regret that there are no adapted toilets at the cinema. However, these facilities are available within easy reach of the cinema in Seven Dials (around the back of Sainsbury's on Kingsmead Square, just in front of the Egg Theatre). A member of staff will be happy to give directions where necessary.

There is no parking at the cinema. Parking for drivers with disabled badges is permitted in St Michael’s Place (adjacent to the cinema) at any time for up to three hours, provided an Orange Badge and clock are displayed.

Customers may be dropped off directly outside the cinema.

Customers with Impaired Sight
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. Alternatively your dog can be cared for by a member of staff for the duration of the performance. We will be happy to provide drinking water for your dog.

We will provide large-print film schedules on request.

Customers with Impaired Hearing
There is a system to aid customers with impaired hearing in each screen.

Screen 1 has an induction loop, which covers the whole auditorium except the balcony. Please turn your hearing aid to the T position.

Screen 2 has an infrared system, for which you need to collect a set of earphones from the upstairs office (the Box Office will advise).

Foreign-language films are screened with English subtitles, and these are clearly indicated in the programme.


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. 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

Licensed Auditoria

Both our auditoria are fully licensed for the consumption of wine and beer, which you can buy from the refreshments counter.
