Bring Your Own Baby These screenings are for parents and carers with babies up to 1 year old. We’ve got a pram park, soft lighting and nappy changing facilities to keep you and your little one happy.

BRING YOUR OWN BABY

Autism-friendly screenings These screenings are for people with autism and their friends or family. Because of sensory sensitivities some people can find going to the cinema difficult. They may disturb other cinemagoers by making noise or needing to go out for a break. For these screenings the soundtrack is turned down and lights are left on low in the cinema. If anyone makes noise or moves around it is fine. People with other learning or sensory disabilities are welcome to attend these screenings too. Access There is ramped access through the Library entrance & lifts to the cinema. There are accessible toilets on the ground & first floor. The cinema has space for three wheelchairs. Infra-Red headsets are available to those with hearing impairments. Assistance dogs are welcome.

This guide is available in large print. Call 020 8253 1030 for a copy. For all other Croydon Council enquiries please call 020 8726 6000.
