Wheelchair Access

All our screens, F&B venues and Hires spaces are accessible by wheelchair.

The only exception is our Classic cinema stalls. Any customers requiring wheelchair access to films or events that are held in our Classic cinema will be charged the standard price for our premier seats in the Classic circle.

We want you to be as comfortable as possible while you are visiting the us, so any guests using our wheelchair spaces have the option to transfer into the cinema seat, or we can remove it if they wish to remain in their wheelchair. You can inform us what you would prefer at box office, or letting the usher on the door know.

Unfortunately wheelchair seats will not be available to book via the website while social distancing measures are in place . Any guests wishing to purchase wheelchair seats must do so over the phone where our box office team will be happy to help.
