Welcome to Watershed, home to three cinemas, the Pervasive Media Studio and a Café & Bar on Bristol’s Harbourside.

Please enter via the main entrance using the walkway next to the harbourside.

If you need to use the ramped, electronically assisted entrance door it is at the side of the building around the corner from the main entrance.

We encourage people to use paperless tickets on their mobile phones, but you can also collect or buy your tickets from Box Office if you like.

You can then go straight up the flight of stairs.

Or you can get a lift to the first floor. Use the hand sanitiser when you exit the lift.

When you arrive upstairs you will see the Welcome Desk.

If you want to go straight to the Cinema, scan your mobile or paper ticket using the scanner (a member of staff can help you if you need it) and you will be shown to the Cinemas. Cinema doors are opened 20 minutes before the film.

If you need the toilet before or during the film, there is an accessible Inclusive toilet right next to Cinema 1, or toilets in the main foyer.

Or you can follow the signs to the toilets to the rear of the screens. Please wear a mask when using the toilet.

Once you are in the cinema, you will notice there are a lot of seats. Your ticket will say which seat you need to sit in – the seat numbers are on the seat arms.

When the film ends, you can leave either by using the way you came in, or by our back exit around the rear of the cinemas. Here’s a picture of the rear exit if you’re leaving the building that way.

If you want to visit the Café & Bar, go back through the foyer and find yourself a table, you can order at the bar or by scanning the QR code on your table.  

On the table you will find instructions for ordering and paying for food and drink with your phone, laptop or tablet. If you don’t have one or you need a hand, speak to a member of staff and they will help you. Your food and drink will be delivered to your table after you order.

If you need the toilet whilst you are visited the Café & Bar you can use the toilets near the Café & Bar, the toilets in the foyer or the Inclusive Toilet. Here is a picture of the Café & Bar toilets.

If you’re in the Café & Bar and want to leave Watershed go back down the main stairs and follow the signs to the right to Accessible door.
