We apologize for the limited wheelchair access at our venue. Due to the age and architectural constraints of the building, we are facing some limitations. However, we are committed to finding a solution and have started exploring different venues for next year’s event. Our team is working hard to accommodate all visitors, but currently, only cinema 2 and 3 have wheelchair accessible spots available. Please refer to the ticket booking tabs for more information or call the cinema on (08) 8341 5988. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this process. we have implemented a solution to address this. We will be live-streaming the event, allowing community groups and individuals who are unable to physically attend but still wish to participate, to have the opportunity to do so. If you are interested in accessing the live stream, kindly send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will provide you with a private link for streaming. Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation.
