Accessibility Info

Wheelchair and Mobility Access
Please note that the very old Garneau Theatre has limited accessibility for those with mobility issues. There are steps separating the lobby and washroom area from the auditorium and from the street. Washroom stalls cannot accommodate a wheelchair. While Metro Cinema is working towards the elimination of these barriers, we’re not there yet.

It is possible to get from an emergency exit into the auditorium via ramp. We encourage you to contact us in advance to discuss ways to mitigate barriers to a visit.

Hearing Access
Metro Cinema now offers the Williams Sound Assistive Listening System for patrons who prefer enhanced listening.

If you would like to use the system, you may request a receiver, and either headphones or a t-coil neckloop, from Metro’s box office. We have four units available to be signed out.

The assisted listening system is available for use at all film screenings, but is not equipped for live music, speaking events, lectures, live theatre, or introductions.

More details about these devices can be found here.

Subtitled Screenings
Metro also offers the following films with one or more screening with subtitles, for those who wish to read along with the film dialogue.

The films listed below have one or more screening presented with subtitles. Click on the film to see which screening times are subtitled.
