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.
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 email@example.com or Tel. 0131 228 6382.
Filmhouse operates a no smoking policy which includes electric cigarettes.
