As a family, your visit to the theatre should be as stress-free and enjoyable as possible, creating memories and conversations long after you’ve gone home. We hope this short list will answer any queries you have about visiting us.
There are no steps when you enter the theatre or in the general visiting area. There are no steps to get into the auditorium; however you will need to navigate some steps if you are sitting in the tiered seating.
We have a toilet for those with disabilities which has full baby changing facilities.
You are welcome to feed your baby in our café area.
You are welcome to park your buggy at the back of the auditorium when watching a show of film, but we take no responsibility for this. There is plenty of room in the café for buggies and prams to move around easily.
We want your whole family to be able to enjoy our wide variety of shows. We offer ‘Babes in Arms’ tickets on many of our shows, simply enquire at the Box Office. These tickets are free and are issued for fire regulations only. They are suitable for babies that are not going to be sat on their own, so we advise children under the age of 18 months.
We have Parent and Baby screenings of films, which are suitable for parents and babies to watch and to not worry if babies need feeding or walking around.
Any other show, we ask that if your baby is crying that you take the baby outside the auditorium where you can soothe them without disturbing other patrons.
Introducing our new relaxed screenings, specially designed for children with SEN and Autism. Enjoy the film without extra stimuli such as queuing. There will be a chill out space available in case you need a break from the film.
The lighting will be dimmed and the sound will be reduced. We won’t show ads or trailers before the film and there will be no loud Front of House announcements.
