Access to Babylon Cinema screenings
The Babylon Cinema is located at The Maltings in Ely. It is fully wheelchair accessible, with a drop-off point located outside the main door, as well as level access from the Ship Lane car park. There is an accessible toilet on the ground floor. Our stewards are always at hand to give directions if needed.
For screenings in our socially distanced, cabaret-style cinema screenings, all seats are wheelchair accessible. Please simply let us know when you book if you'd like to remain in your chair for the screening, or transfer to a seat.
We have seats with additional space for assistance dogs (subject to availability).
Induction loop system
The auditorium has an induction loop system. To use, simply adjust your hearing aid to the 'T' or 'M' position.
We ensure there are several Subtitled and Open Caption screenings per month. If we have several screenings of one film, there will always be one subtitled performance.
Relaxed and dementia-friendly screenings
