When films are equipped with closed captioning, we offer closed captioning devices for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing: small easy-to-read LED screens that fit in a seat’s cup holder.
Open captioning is currently available for select showtimes each week for films in s/tudios 1 & 2. Additionally, all international films are shown with subtitles.
Assistive listening headphones are available for specific films, and amplify audio for patrons who are hard of hearing. Headphones are self-contained and have the independent right/left audio control.
When films are equipped with audio description, headphones are available for patrons with visual impairment.
