General Building Information

The Dave Barber Cinematheque resides in the main floor lobby of Artspace. The main entrances at Arthur St. and King St. have automatic door push triggers.

All of the washrooms within Artspace are non-gendered, multi stall washrooms.  The washrooms have wheelchair accessible stalls with handrails, but do not have automatic doors. One of the two washrooms have urinals that are not enclosed by locking doors.

Cinematheque Box Office

Cinematheque’s box office is located in the Artspace lobby. There is ample space around the box office in the lobby and there are clear sightlines for people, with the counter coming up to 43” in height.

Access to the theatre is made through a single door to the left of the box office. The door measures 36’’ wide. Once inside the theatre, a slightly-sloped ramp (52’’ wide) leads to the seats. There is one spot without a seat designated for wheelchairs/mobility aids/strollers, located immediately to the patron’s left when they reach the top of the ramp. The theatre floor is slightly-sloped toward the screen to ensure all patrons have clear sight lines. Each row of seats has an aisle space measuring 27’’ wide. The seats themselves measure 21’’ from arm-rest to arm-rest, with a cushion measuring 18.5’’ by 18.’’

Closed Captioning

Cinematheque is equipped with closed-captioning services for our patrons with vision impairments. Not all of the films shown at Cinematheque have the closed-captioning feature, so interested guests are encouraged to contact us before they come down to the theatre. If closed-captioning is available, we have 4 sets of glasses that display the captions to the guest that are available for use upon request.

Accepted Payment Types

We accept all major credit and debit cards. For safety reasons, we cannot accept cash at the box office. If this is a barrier for you please contact nic@winnipegfilmgroup.com and we will work to make accommodations.


Masks are not required in the theatre and building lobby. However, we encourage patrons to wear masks and have them available, free of charge, at the box office.
