Full wheelchair access is on offer in each screen and all auditoria are fitted with an Infra Red transmitter for Audio Description for the visually impaired & audio support headsets will be available in cinema for those who require hearing support.
What does Audio Described mean?
An audio described performance is a standard screening ideal for visually impaired people. It works by playing a recorded narration, explaining what's happening on screen - during gaps in the dialogue - through personal headphones. The normal film soundtrack comes through the cinemas surround sound speakers in the usual way, so Audio description is undetectable to anyone else in the auditorium not using a headset. Headsets are available on request from the Cinema box office. Titles available with this facility will be highlighted on our Web Site.
As part of a general cinema industry initiative, all our cinemas accept the CEA Card which entitles the holder to one free ticket for their carer (Click here for further details).
