Audio Description & Subtitled Screenings

For the hearing impaired
(1) we have bluetooth receivers that offer audio amplification – please bring your own earphones or headphones (with mini jack) to plug into our receivers, as for hygiene reasons we can no longer provide these. Ask a staff member to borrow a receiver into which you can plug your headset.
(2) captioned or subtitled screenings featuring full English language subtitles are shown at a frequency of around two to three per month (during our reduced schedule operating in 2020-21 because of the pandemic). The genre of film and the screening time and day of the week when films are screened with subtitles are rotated to try to be as inclusive as possible. Descriptive subtitling / captioned screenings feature subtitles for speech and provide subtitles for other significant sounds for example when a phone rings, a door slams or when music is playing. Please refer to the list below for upcoming subtitled screenings. These screenings are also shown with ‘S/T’ after the film’s certificate in the programme and ‘CC’ after the screening time on the film’s webpage.

For the visually impaired, we offer audio description for selected films via a bluetooth receiver – please bring your own earphones or headphones (with mini jack) to plug into our receivers, as for hygiene reasons we can no longer provide these. Ask a staff member to borrow a receiver into which you can plug your headphones or each phones.

Audio Described film titles are also shown with ‘A/D’ after the film’s certificate in the programme (which can be downloaded from the website homepage) and AD after the screening time on the film’s webpage and are also listed below.
