Access for Patrons with disabilities

Filmhouse Foyer and box office are reached via a ramped surface from Lothian Road. Our cafe/bar and disabled toilet are also at this level. The majority of the seats in the bar are not fixed and can be moved.

There is wheelchair access to all three cinemas. Cinema One has space for 2 wheelchairs and is reached via the passenger lift; Cinemas 2 and 3 have one space each and to get to these you need to use the platform lifts. Staff are always on hand to operate them - please ask at the Box Office when you purchase your tickets.

Advance booking for wheelchair spaces is recommended. A second adapted unisex toilet is situated at the lower level close to Cinemas 2 and 3. If you need to bring along a helper to assist you in any way, then they will receive a complimentary ticket.

Babies and young children

It is Filmhouse policy not to let in any children under the age of three to any screening with the exception of Filmhouse Junior screenings (which are specifically for children) and For Crying Out Loud (Carer and Baby) screenings.

Subtitles, Audio Description & Hearing Loops

In all three screens we have a system which enables us, whenever the necessary discs are available, to show onscreen subtitles for customers who are deaf or hard of hearing, and provide audio description (via infra-red headsets) for those who are sight-impaired.

Please click here for lists of our current audio-described and subtitled screenings.

If you would like to receive a monthly plain text email newsletter with information on all audio-described and subtitled screenings at Filmhouse, please contact or Tel. 0131 228 6382.

There are a large print and a Braille version of our monthly print brochure available at the Box Office on request, or it can be posted out to you free of charge.

Please contact the Filmhouse Administration on Tel. 0131 228 6382 or if you, or someone you know, would like to be added to one of these mailing lists.
