Accessible Cinema

In addition to the above access features, The Maltings Theatre & Cinema presents the following periodic film screenings:

  • HOH English (S)ubtitled Screenings for people with hearing loss
  • Autism Friendly Film Screenings offer a sympathetic sensory experience for people on the autism spectrum: lighting left on low; softer volume; no trailers or adverts; okay to make noise and move about (no running); bar available as a “chill-out space”; patrons on a special diet can bring their own food.
  • CEA Card - As a proud member of the Cinema Exhibitors’ Association, we accept the CEA Card which enables a registered disabled person to obtain a free CINEMA ticket for a carer to accompany them to a film. To join the scheme, the registered disabled person (NOT the carer) must apply in advance directly with the CEA (NOT from The Maltings). Full details, application and guidance at ceacard.co.uk

 

The Maltings Theatre & Cinema is operated by The Maltings (Berwick) Trust Registered Charity No: 701194
