Inclusive Cinema for All

We’re committed to making our cinema accessible to everyone.

General accessibility information is shown below, and accessibility details are shown on films and performances in our programme. Our shows are all wheelchair-accessible, and assistive-listening devices are available for every performance. Most of our shows also have audio description. We usually hold at least one subtitled show each week, and autism-friendly shows are usually held every month.

We accept CEA Cards which allow free admission for someone accompanying the cardholder. We also accept National Carers Cards, Carers Cards UK, and Access Cards which provide discounted tickets for carers all day at weekends and after 5pm on Thursdays & Fridays. More accessibility information, including how to use CEA or carers cards to book tickets, is shown below.

If you would like further information about accessibility, please contact us or call 01303 221 230 during cinema opening hours.

If you need extra assistance when you visit our cinema, you can use your CEA Card to allow free admission for someone* to accompany you. Other national carers cards also provide a discounted ticket at certain times. See below for more information.

There is a full lift between the ground floor entrance and our foyer. Once inside our main entrance, take the corridor to the right of the stairs; the lift is at the end.

Both auditoriums are wheelchair accessible with dedicated wheelchair spaces and companion seats. See below for more information.

We have hearing loops at our box office and kiosk. Please switch your hearing aid to the “T” position if it has this setting.

Assistive listening systems are available in both auditoriums. Please ask staff for a headset, or for a portable hearing loop for use with hearing aids set to the “T” position. See below for more information.

Most of our screenings have audio description available. Look for the AD symbol in our film information, and ask staff for a headset when you arrive. See below for more information.

Regular subtitled screenings are usually held every week. Look for the ear symbol in our film times.

We hold a relaxed autism-friendly sensory sensitive screening every month, with no adverts, sound reduced and lighting dimmed during the film. Look for the lightbulb symbol in our film times.

Assistance dogs are welcome at our cinema.

Using Your CEA Card

To use your CEA Card when booking online, please follow these steps. If the performance has allocated seating, choose seats on the seating plan before selecting each ticket type.

  1. Select ‘CEA Adult’ for cardholders aged 18 to 59, or ‘CEA Other’ for cardholders who are children or senior citizens.
  2. Select more tickets for the other people in your group – the accompanying person’s ticket must be an adult, child, or senior.*
  3. When you have selected all of your tickets, click ‘ADD TO ORDER’.
  4. On the confirmation screen, click ‘APPLY DISCOUNT CODES’ and enter your CEA Card number in the box.
  5. One adult, child, or senior ticket and associated booking fee will be discounted to £0.00 for each CEA Card entered.

Please remember to bring your CEA Card with you when you attend the cinema.

* Please note that it is presumed the accompanying person is aged 16 years or older, and has the ability to assist the cardholder while at the cinema. We reserve the right to make a judgement on the ability of the accompanying person to assist the cardholder, and to refuse the provision of a free ticket where appropriate. For reasons of safety, we do not allow children to act as an accompanying person on our balcony.

Other ticket discounts cannot be used in conjunction with the CEA Card. For full CEA Card terms and conditions, please visit www.ceacard.co.uk.

Carers Cards

We accept National Carers Cards, Carers Cards UK, and Access Cards which provide discounted tickets for carers all day at weekends and after 5pm on Thursdays & Fridays. To use one of these cards, please book a “Concession” ticket type, and remember to bring your card with you when you visit.

Wheelchair Spaces & Companion Seats

Wheelchair spaces can be booked through our website, but companion spaces are currently restricted for booking to reserve them for people who need them. To book a companion seat next to a wheelchair space you have already booked, please contact us directly during cinema opening hours on 01303 221 230, or email boxoffice@folkestonecinema.com.

We regret that, due to the historic nature and listed status of the building, our balcony is not wheelchair accessible.

Our main auditorium is due for refurbishment later this year, including planned improvements to our wheelchair spaces. Until this is complete, staff may suggest alternative wheelchair positions depending on your requirements. We thank you for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Assistive-Listening & Audio Description

If you require an assistive-listening headset, portable hearing loop, or audio description, please ask staff for a device when you arrive. You can also request a device in advance by contacting us directly during cinema opening hours on 01303 221 230, or by emailing boxoffice@folkestonecinema.com.

Please note that hearing aids set to the “T” position will not work in the auditorium by themselves; you will also require a portable hearing loop, available from our box office.

When using one of our headsets or portable hearing loops in the stalls of our main auditorium, we recommend taking seats in the centre, on rows C to K, close to the middle aisle. On our balcony, we recommend taking seats in the centre section towards the front on rows A to E. Please avoid sitting in the rear rows or towards the side walls of the auditorium, as audio reception may be reduced.
