The museum, IMAX and Pictureville are temporarily closed. Find out about our major transformation.

Accessible screenings

While Pictureville Cinema is closed, we are not able to offer our usual range of accessible screenings—we're working to offer more as soon as possible.

Audio described

Audio description is available at these screenings for blind and partially sighted visitors—please ask a member of staff for a headset when you arrive. Description is undetectable to anyone not wearing a headset.


These screenings have closed captioning for d/Deaf and hard of hearing visitors.

Autism friendly

These screenings are for visitors with autism, an anxiety disorder, or a Special Educational Need that means they would benefit from a quieter, more relaxed environment. Lights will be left on, the volume of the soundtrack will be reduced, and it’s fine for you to move around, make noise or take a break.

Dementia friendly

These screenings are open to all but cater especially to people living with dementia. Sound levels are turned down, lights are left on and there are no trailers or adverts.
