How do I make my cinema inclusive and accessible?

The ICO has worked with Shape to develop a reference guideline for independent cinemas to improve access in venues for their disabled visitors. Shape is a disability-led arts organisation that for over 30 years has been working to improve access to the arts and culture.

We hope it offers a starting point for developing audiences and improving access for your cinema.

The information provided is not however exhaustive, nor does it constitute advice on legal requirements, and we recommend that you use the expert sources of information listed in the Useful Contacts section.
