Cultch Accessibility Info:
The Cultch underwent major renovations in 2008, which included increasing accessibility for people with disabilities.
All areas but the balcony of the Historic Theatre are wheelchair accessible. You can purchase tickets at the lowered counter outside, then enter the main space via the wide automatic door. Once inside, there is a vestibule leading into the main open-concept lobby. Continuing on, you will find three washroom options: a fully wheelchair accessible single stall gender-neutral washroom, and for Verses, two gender-neutral washrooms each with a wheelchair accessible stall. Staff are friendly and able to assist in a variety of ways.
Seats in the C-Lab have arms and are 19-1/2 inches wide. Arms can be removed on some seats by request.
Please note, the Historic Theatre balcony is only accessible via the staircase.
There is no designated wheelchair accessible parking, but there is street parking around the neighbourhood. As well, there are two parking spots that can be used at the rear of the building. We suggest that people call the box office ahead of time to reserve access to these spaces. There is wheelchair accessible transit within 2 blocks, and bicycle lock-ups outside.
If you have any questions, concerns, additions or corrections regarding this accessibility audit please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
