Cinema should be enjoyed by everyone.

At Parkway Workington we have invested in the latest technology to help make cinema more accessible for everyone.

All of the screens in this cinema are equipped with DAS (Dolby Accessibility Solution) which can help people with hearing or vision impairments.


A small device is lent to you by the cinema for your show (free of charge) that sits in your cup holder, or on your personal tray.

This device has a screen on it with an adjustable arm. The screen can be adjusted for your comfort and has a privacy filter on it to minimise distraction for other cinema users.

Plug your own ear phones in (or borrow some of ours) and any film we show can be made more accessible for customers with impaired hearing or vision.


1. Reserve a DAS set by contacting us before your booking.

2. Collect your DAS at the ticket check point.

3. When in your seat, select your screen.

4. Select if you would like to use the DAS for HI (Hearing Impairment) or VI (Visual Impairment).

5. Plug in your headphones (or borrow some of ours) and enjoy the show.

The Dolby Accessibility Solution integrates hearing impaired (HI) amplified audio, visually impaired narrative (VI-N) audio, and closed captions (CC) in real time on a single dedicated receiver. Dolby Accessibility Solution allows us to make your cinema more accessible to all hard of hearing or visually impaired customers.

For the audio description soundtrack and increased volume for hard of hearing customers, the vast majority of new film releases are compatible with the DAS.

We do not seperately list these shows, however, there is the odd film that is released without the ability to provide these features. For this reason, we ask you to contact us to double check we can offer you these enhancements.

For customers wanting closed captions (subtitles) on the DAS, compatible shows are listed below:
