Captioned screenings for D/deaf and hard of hearing audience members
We screen films from our main programme with Captions on a regular basis, for both adults and children who are Deaf or experience hearing loss.
Captioned screenings are different to subtitled screenings as they provide a transcription of all of the audio from a film, displayed at the bottom of the cinema screen. Along with the dialogue from the film, the subtitles include non-dialogue audio such as “(sighs)” or “(door creaks)”.
Hearing Loop with a Hard of Hearing track
Our hearing loop has been upgraded to the Dolby Fidelio system, and we have headsets for customers to use in the auditorium.
The Hard of Hearing track has all the same audio as usual, just a little louder.
You can also bring your own earphones if you prefer. Please ask for this at the box office and let us know which screen you’re heading to so we can tune you in!
We run screenings with closed captions twice a month, so please check our programme for details.
