Independent Cinema Office: How do I make my cinema inclusive and accessible?

The Independent Cinema Office (ICO) has worked with Shape to develop a reference guideline for independent cinemas to improve access in venues for their disabled visitors.

  • Why you should make your cinema more accessible
