Please feel free to pass on any comments that you have about Access Cinema to front of house staff.
  • For most of the films in our programme we can schedule a special Access daytime screening for groups of 10 or more visitors buying a ticket. The RBCFT will do its best to provide a suitable environment to meet the groups’ needs. Anyone who needs to bring along a helper to assist them in any way, will receive a complimentary ticket.
  • We can do the following:
    • Facilitate wheelchair access.
    • Provide a ‘low sensory environment’ where the films have no subtitles, the volume is turned down, the and the house lights left on low, and adults and children are able to make noise and move around if need be.
    • Facilitate hearing loop users
  • We are sorry that at present we cannot provide an auditory description system for blind or partially sighted customers. We are investigating these systems and hope that this service will be possible in the future.
  • Generally for daytime Access screenings doors open at 12.30pm and film starts at 1.00pm. Other times can be considered at the time of the group booking.
  • Tickets cost £4.20 per person. Assistants/carers free.
