The Lady in the Van is a 12A screening, it is funny, poignant and life-affirming, The Lady in the Van is based upon Alan Bennett’s celebrated memoir. It reveals the true story of the relationship between Bennett and a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked in his London driveway, and stayed there for 15 years.

What are Caption Subtitles?
Deaf or hearing impaired customers who cannot use our audio aids because of incompatibility with their hearing aid, or due to a greater level of hearing loss, may rely on subtitling to let them ‘hear’ the film dialogue (in the same way hearing customers rely on subtitles to understand a foreign language film).
These Caption Subtitles provide much more information than “normal” English subtitles. They also inform the cinema goer when something is sung rather then spoken, when significant music is happening, often providing the lyrics, or of significant sound effects (eg phone rings, doorbell chimes, etc) – especially those taking place off screen.
