Special Needs Facilities

Our cafe, cinema auditorium and comfort facilities are fully accessible, and we host a variety of inclusive events each week.


We are situated in the heart of Aberfeldy, overlooking the town square. Parking is usually available on the adjoining Chapel Street, or within 100 yards in the public car park behind the Cooperative store. There is also a disabled space to the east side of the building and another in the Aberfeldy square.


The Birks Cinema scores highly on physical access. Our entrance has a gentle ramp and the door is operated by a push pad. Inside, we have one-level access from the entrance into the café-bar and then to the auditorium. All toilets are also situated on this level.

Our two meeting spaces on the mezzanine floor are accessible by wheelchair-friendly lift.

The Birks Cinema 100-seat auditorium has an adjustable seating row to accommodate wheelchair users.

We also have a hearing loop system and are introducing screenings for those with particular special needs.

On arrival, we aim to provide all customers a sincere verbal welcome, and “if you need anything please ask”.

The Birks Cinema hosts a relaxed screening of a film on the last Friday of each month, with raised low-level lighting and reduced sound levels.

A monthly dementia friendly screening will have soft lighting and lower sound. Use the dementia friendly icon in our movie listings for dates and times.

Our Lego Animation Club for youngsters with Additional Support Needs is a popular after-school creative activity – you can find out more by clicking here.
