Our audio description devices provide an alternative soundtrack that narrates the description of a film's key visual elements. These visual descriptions are inserted into pauses in the film's dialogue.  Not all films offer audio descripitive accessibility.  A driver’s license is needed as a security deposit.

For digital film screenings, assistive radio frequency (R.F.) listening devices are available at the box office and may be used from any seat in the main theatre.  A driver’s license is needed as a security deposit.

When films are equipped with closed captioning, we offer closed captioning devices (small, easy-to-read LED screens) for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing.  A driver’s license is needed as a security deposit.

An Open Caption screening is available for every digital film we book.  Click on our Calendar page for OC dates and times for our current feature.
