Buggy Parking at Cinébabies

Due to the popularity of Cinébabies screenings we sometimes have limited buggy parking space. This results in us having to restrict the number of buggies we can accommodate.

We highly recommend that you book your tickets in advance to ensure that you are not disappointed.


Access

If the film has Audio Description / Descriptive Subtitles (we do not know this until the Film Distributor confirms it with us) the Cinébabies screening will ALWAYS be a DS screening. This ensures that the opportunity is as accessible as possible – with the added bonus that if one of the babies decides to make their presence known in the screening the growns ups won’t miss any of the action as long as they are looking at the screen!

We’ll announce if the film has Descriptive Subtitles as soon as we have confirmation of this (sometimes this can be quite late in the day). So please keep checking the Calendar to see what Access information there is.

Better yet, sign up to our Accessible Programme mailing list and we will email you whenever we have Descriptive Subtitled films, including Cinébabies ones.
