What is Accessible Screenings UK?

Accessible Screenings UK is the first ever comprehensive and searchable listings database for accessible screenings in UK cinemas, including Subtitled (ST - sometimes referred to as Opened Captioned or OC), Audio described (AD), Autism Friendly Screenings (AF) and Dementia Friendly Screenings (DF).

UK cinemas are committed to being inclusive and finding ways to meet the needs of all of their guests. Research though tells us that those who might benefit from many of the adaptations now available sometimes find it difficult to access relevant and correct information.

Accessible Screenings UK was created to collate and promote this information. The website is fully accessible and serves to act as the hub of information for all activities relating to disability and access  in UK cinemas.

Who runs Accessible Screenings UK?

Accessible Screenings UK is owned by and managed on behalf of the UK Cinema Association (UKCA). The UKCA is the trade body that represents well over 90 per cent of UK cinema operators, including all of the major cinema circuits as well as smaller mainstream and more specialised cinema sites.

The Association and its members continue to discuss and develop approaches around disability and access to cinema through our Disability Working Group, which comprises representatives from the largest cinema chains, technology partners, colleagues from film distribution and representatives from supporting charities. This group has been instrumental in helping us support our members in implementing a best practice approach regarding access to cinema for disabled people.

The UKCA continues to provide support and guidance to its members in this area, though how each cinema operates is ultimately its own decision.

Where possible, this site provides showtime listings and information for XXXXX cinema sites around the UK. If you cannot find information on your local cinema, please contact us.
