Wheelchairs in the cinema
The two wheelchair spaces are located next to the cinema entrance, at the edge of the last row. They are easy to access and they have a great view to the screen. In some cases, we can allow smaller wheelchair also behind the back row.
In the cinema lobby, there is an accessible toilet. It does not, however, completely follow the guidelines:
- the door is 80 cm wide
- there is a handle only on the right side of the toilet seat, and the handle is 70 cm from the wall
There is a built-in induction loop inside the cinema.
