ACCESSIBILITY AT THE RITZY

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 or prepare a wheelchair space in advance of your arrival. Accompanying carers are eligible for a free ticket.


Customers with limited mobility 

The main entrance gives access to the Box Office, kiosk, bar and four of our screens. The fifth screen and main floor of the café can be accessed via a lift to the first floor. Our main auditorium (Screen 1) has six wheelchair spaces, the other four (Screens 2-5) have two each. All wheelchair spaces are positioned on the front row.


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. Alternatively, your dog can be cared for by a member of staff for the duration of the performance and we will be happy to provide drinking water for your dog. Screen 1 is equipped with audio descriptive equipment.


Customers with impaired hearing

Screens 2, 3, 4 and 5 has an induction loop. Hearing aid users should turn their aids to the 'T' position. Some of our screenings have English-language subtitles for customers with hearing impairments. Please contact the cinema for further information.


Disabled parking

There are no parking facilities directly outside the cinema. However, parking bays are located around the corner on Rushcroft Road. Please note that during the day these spaces fill rapidly.


Toilets

Customer toilets are located on both the ground floor and the first floor. An adapted toilet for wheelchair users is located on the ground floor on the main corridor to the screens. There is an emergency call-point in this toilet should a user need to summon assistance.
