Cinematheque 

Cinematheque’s box office is located in the Artspace lobby. There is ample space around the box office in the lobby and there are clear sightlines for people, with the counter coming up to 43” in height.

Access to the theatre is made through a single door to the left of the box office. The door measures 36” wide. Once inside, the theatre has a slightly-sloped ramp (52” wide) leading to the seats. There is one spot without a seat designated for wheelchairs/walkers/strollers, located immediately to the patron’s left when they reach the top of the ramp. There is ample space for access and mobility around and amongst rows of seats.

Cinematheque is equipped with closed-captioning services for our patrons with vision impairments. Not all of the films shown at Cinematheque have the closed-captioning feature, so interested guests are encouraged to contact us before they come down to the theatre. If closed-captioning is available, we have 4 sets of glasses that display the captions to the guest that are available for use upon request.
