This section gives useful information on the specific access that Hippodrome offers to diverse audiences in regards to our venue and programme.

The entrance to The Hippodrome has a ramp and handrails. Three wheelchairs can be accommodated in the lower auditorium (front row). Please advise Box Office staff when purchasing tickets if these are required.

Our reception/box office desk is at a suitable height for wheelchair users 

An adapted WC is located on the ground floor.

There are designated disabled parking spaces on Hope Street and Hamilton Lane and in the nearby free carparks on Seaview Place, Register Street and Union Street.

The Hippodrome accepts the CEA Card. Apply online or pick up an application form at the Hippodrome Box Office, FTH Theatre or our Box Office at Falkirk Community Stadium. This card entitles the card holder to a free ticket for the person accompanying them to the cinema.

The Hippodrome offers Autism Friendly screenings, Audio Description and captioning on selected titles and selected screenings.

Autism Friendly

The Hippodrome programmes regular screenings for young people with Autism and their families. At these screenings the film and the cinema environment within the Hippodrome will be suitable for children with Autism Spectrum disorders and/or sensory hypersensitivity. The screenings are priced as normal and everyone is welcome to these screenings but the following modifications will be observed:

  • No adverts / trailers
  • Modified lighting (ie brighter lit in the auditorium)
  • Reduced volume
  • A relaxed approach to moving from your seat
  • The option to bring your own refreshments if specific dietary requirements are not available from the Hippodrome café
  • If there are any other ways that we can assist you and your child at the film - just ask one of our team.

Captions

A service for D/deaf and hard of hearing audience members providing subtitles to enable understanding of the film’s dialogue and off-screen action. Captioning includes the text of all onscreen dialogue as well as off-screen sounds, enabling people with varying hearing loss access to the full cinema experience. 

See all films with Captioned Screenings here

We can offer an infra-red sound facility for the hard of hearing (please ask at Box Office for a head set).

Audio Description

Audio Description is a service for partially sighted or blind people providing an audio track of key visual descriptions. This track runs in time with the film's action. AD headphones are available to collect from Box Office when you pick up your tickets prior to the film screening. Please contact our Box Office on 01324 506850or email bookings@falkirkcommunitytrust.org with a headset request.
