Accessibility is perhaps not the most exciting area of film to work in, but it can be very fulfilling. Knowing that a deaf or blind child can follow the latest superhero or animated adventure on the big screen with their friends makes one feel good!
Opportunities to attend accessible subtitled or narrated shows are very much appreciated by many, as clearly indicated by the positive experiences from hundreds of happy customers on this page.
@WarwickADavis (Star Wars actor) What a brilliant service! Respect to you for taking the time to make cinema accessible to all. (Retweeted to 700,000)
Just been to see #MaryPoppins @ODEONCinemas Leicester. So grateful for #subtitledshowing, which enabled me to go with my niece. Thank you to everyone who makes #subtitles happen: you make a difference for the better for #deaf people. @ActionOnHearing @NervetumoursUK
Off to see Mary Poppins with subtitles today with all the family. This has literally never happened before. So excited to actually have a trip to the cinema together #subtitledcinema
@cineworld Thanks @cineworld- a subtitled showing of Crimes Of Grindelwald at a sensible time to take my daughter in the first week - for once she’ll be one of the first of her friends to see a film instead of one of the last 👍👍👍👍
Fantastic Beasts 2, subtitled? Yes! Week of release?? YES! Thank you @cineworld, the world is a better place!
Thanks to Odeon Wimbledon for putting subtitled show of Crimes of Grindelwald so close to opening night, fabulous thank you #subtitledIt
@yourlocalcinema @jk_rowling @ActionOnHearing Thank you @cineworld Approx 20 people in a 9.30am #FantasticBeasts2 screening that only seats approx 100. So not bad considering it was only put on your website at late notice ! Hope this helps show that #subtitled screenings are cost effective £200+ 🍬🍿☕️🥤#ProtectThe
@cineworld Saw Venom yesterday, such a great film. Eastbourne's subtitled showing was a hit again too! Thank you x
Friends of Prestwick Seafront ... Another full house for our community relaxed cinema ... our afternoons are so much more than just watching a film. It's about #inclusion #community and tea! Just as well we show #subtitles on all films!
@omniplexcinema in Balbriggan- my three hearing children are watching subtitled film Grinch with me now. It’s rare for me to go to the cinema- very limited choices and times. Today I have a free morning! To the cinema at 12 pm! Hard to drag my kids out of bed #deafaccess
When you go to book tickets for #FirstMan @westfieldlondon @vuecinemas with subtitles but discover there are NO TICKETS AVAILABLE because subtitled showings are in the smallest screen so hardly any seats.
This site is amazing and so helpful i havent been to the cinema in years untill i came across this site and discovered i could go and see stuff with subtitles !! I cant wait to see more. Thank you for this site as it means a lot to me I am sure it helps a lot of other people out there with the same disability.
Went to the cinema last night and the showing had #subtitles! This is great! Took nothing from the film and made it way more accessible - more please!
@cineworld Put the bloody subtitles on a Friday and Saturday evenings! I don’t want to go to the Deaf Club and play bingo on these nights. I hate bingo! I want to go to the cinema and there is nothing for me to watch. I’m a potential customer man!
First visit to @Everymancinema @GXLocal for about a year, finally they had a #subtitledfilm I wanted to see at a time I could make it #AStarIsBorn. Enjoyed the film but the soundtrack was SOOO LOUD I had to remove my #hearingaids
@cineworld have just watched the amazing new Mission Impossible:Fallout at Eastbourne, with SUBTITLES again!! Thank you again for weekend inclusion for your deaf customers, I hope you keep it up x
@yourlocalcinema @CentralPictureH @picturehouses thank you Picturehouse for showing subtitled viewings at weekends and weekday evenings, if you do them more frequently then I maybe tempted to a membership. :)
I really wish cinemas would do MORE Subtitles. Since I lost my hearing a year ago, it's a very different world to what I've been used to, fortunately, I have just enough hearing that my aid's work, esp when in T-Mode which my local cinema has
Went to see The wife at curzon Victoria, I knew it was a subtitles showing, but most people didn't. It was a full house. Did they walk out? Nope...cinemas take note and be braver put more subtitles on films, people will get used to it. #cinemas
Thank you Cineworld The Charity - Dacorum Talking Newspaper - records the local news each week for the sight impaired folk of Dacorum. I am very grateful for the information you have sent me on AD. Our Listeners will be delighted to receive this to enhance their cineworld experience.
Requested a subtitled viewing of Johnny English Strikes Back at a choice of days/times! My daughters and I are unlimited members and would love that my son who is deaf get to see this movie! He hasn't been able to come with us for such a long time and this one we are really looking forward to watching this with him! Thank you in anticipation!!
Have huge love for cinema chains like @ODEONCinemas who have audio description in 90% of their screens. It is brilliant & I go at least once a week with a friend who gets in free for guiding me). Having been into film while sighted it makes all the difference.
@ODEONCinemas Thank you for putting on a subtitled screening of Ant Man at Odeon Norwich. Made one marvel fan very happy tonight to be able to access the cinema and see the film so soon after release.
ODEON were fab during my time at university when I wanted to see both Deadpool and Infinity War with captions. After initially voicing my concern about a lack of subtitled screenings, a member of staff emailed with some more information and was super helpful. Enjoy the movie!
Thank you @cineworld Hemel for arranging a subtitled screening yesterday of @mammamiamovie. My Deaf mum hadn’t been to the cinema in 15 years, & to sit with her watching a film I worked on was magical. I felt the luckiest man in the world. Thank you! Access more often please!❤️ My Mum wanted to watch me on the big screen & didn’t want to wait for the DVD. My parents are Deaf so popping to any showing isn’t possible but after putting in a request with @cineworld, they’ve scheduled a #Captionedscreening on Sunday of @mammamiamovie So grateful! Thank you!
At #Leicester @ODEONCinemas and once again great assistance by the staff. Outstanding help by Katie. Ready with our hotdog and nachos waiting for #themeg to begin with #audiodescription for the #Blind 👏😀
Wow. 77 people, myself included watched a subtitled version of Mamma Mia 2 at @vuecinemas today... not one walked out or complained.
Thanks to @cineworld #Brighton having #subtitles for #MammaMia (and @ODEONCinemas not bothering), I've booked tickets. Seeing it with someone who's #deaf and is excited at being included by a thoughtful cinema #Access
Well who needs the official sing -a - long version when you have subtitles !! Mamma Mia Here we go again actually preferred it to the first one ! Who’s up for the official sing-a-long ? @CurzonClevedon
Crazy Rich Asians ... 🙌🏻 It was such a good movie and for once I felt like I could actually follow the entire dialogues thanks to the subtitles 🤓 #SubtitledCinema
@ODEONCinemas Thank you so much! My dads hearing has rapidly decreased lately and I always take him to the cinema for Father’s Day. I took a chance and called my local Odeon to ask if they can put a subtitled SOLO showing on on Sunday. They said yes! Thank you! 👨👧
Thanks to @yourlocalcinema for your help when I contacted you via chat last week. And thanks to @cineworld for contacting @cinedidsbury and putting on subtitled sessions for Mamma Mia. My 15 year old daughter’s first trip to a cinema for a long time and she had a great time.
At an afternoon Mamma Mia 2 subtitled show one of the cinema staff said to my mum that not many deaf people come to the shows. My mum told them that of the five of us there today, her daughter (me) is the only deaf one. I have long hair covering my hearing aids, and I don’t sign, so you’d never know that I'm deaf. The rest of us are not deaf, but we are all there for the subtitles!
About to watch Jurassic World at Eastbourne. Another subtitled success for your deaf customers. Well done @cineworld you are fab!!
The last two films I’ve seen @cineworld Ely have been English with subtitles (Ready Player One, Rampage) and I would happily see more that way as needed to give everyone the chance to enjoy cinema.
Watched A Quiet Place yesterday at Coventry Cinema with subtitles. Have to say it is really good and terrifying too. Credit to Deaf actress Millicent Simmonds. #Deaf #AQuietPlace
When you’re mooching around feeling sorry for yourself and you start looking at subtitled films and moaning cos there’s NOTHING on Sunday then you find Black Panther is on in Camden in HALF AN HOUR and well! Greased lightning darlings!
@cineworld just been to see SUBTITLED Deadpool @ Eastbourne Cineworld ... thank you!!!
Just home from the Cinema @ifi went to see Isle of Dogs and it was audio described so cool well done IFI for a super bit of kit.
Seeing Avengers Infinity War with subtitles with some of my favourite people!
Absolutely couldn’t do without subtitles, have relied on them since this website started! Always a relief when they come on, Islington Vue is very reliable.
Pacific Rim Uprising, subtitled, opening weekend. Thank you @Cineworld, that's my Sunday afternoon sorted!
Brilliant. Been visiting your website for years and finally got round to downloading your app, just as easy to roam. Love the subtitled trailers specially. Keep up the good work!
You have done great work to date, for us to gain some access to current cinema. Hoping it continues as planned - the future generation will be luckier. Thank you for the work you do, and listings to let us now where and when films are subtitled.
This is such a fantastic service! If you’re in the UK and need subtitled cinema you can check their site for showings and times at most local cinemas
After seeing Ready Player One and rediscovering retro games and music for years, the cochlear implant helps me to relearn and with better accessibility today, it helps to fill in the missing gaps that I missed as a deaf child. Loving it. Looks like nostalgia waves this weekend.
I finally managed to see Last Jedi on a subtitled showing... on Sunday... Yeeesss enjoyed it... another cinema has ST showing tonight ... bonus.. twice in 1 week...
Hi there! I'm a filmmaker based in Liverpool and I wear hearing aids with a high frequency loss. I just want to say that I use your service all the time. I am so so grateful for it. In a sense, you changed my life. Because of you, I'm now able to go to the cinemas with my friends. I have recently made a feature film which is coming out on DVD. The DVD has subtitles, I made sure of that!
As a fully hearing person: I LOVE watching movies with subtitles because I miss less of the dialogue. (I also find it easier to learn characters' names this way, but that's a "me" thing.)
I'm off to see Red Sparrow tomorrow at 11am so I can see the subtitled showing. I'm prexdicting lots of accents so i'll be needing them captions!
Went to the cinema today. Intended to watch black panther but the audio description in that screen was not working. Props to Odeon who gave us a refund and allowed us to go see any film we wanted for free. Saw red sparrow instead. Was bloody brilliant.
👍👍 This is what we want-thanks!!
Thanks to your reply I got to see Black Panther with subtitles and loved it. So grateful you responded!
@yourlocalcinema just tweeting to say how much of f****** legends you are.
@MediaMuseumPH @shapeofwater Audio description has allowed me to reengage and really immerse myself in the action of such great movies like Star Wars and black panther this is what accessibility is all about
... try Lipreading a Stormtrooper or Captain Phasma... Even with a Hearing Aid the film is not that accessible to people with hearing issues without subtitles...
So all cinemas take note @ODEONCinemas @vuecinemas @cineworld its perfectly possible to have full screenings even with subtitles! Just home from Greatest Showman with no protests from hearing people and every seat sold
1 hour until #BlackPanther! Been looking forward to this all week. Thank you to @cineworld for having an accessible (subtitled) showing on opening weekend - it's great to be able to see the big new films at same time as everyone else.
Thanks to your fab website we’ve found a subtitled screening on Sun and we’re going.
@VueHelp Thanks so much for putting in a subtitled viewing on Sunday. We'll be there with many other deaf friends! The Plymouth Deaf Children's Society and the families involved thank you. 😊
Went to my first ever cinema experiance with subtitles. It’s like been at home other even bigger screen 😂
Please can we have more subtitled films. It is so important for the deaf to feel part of this world. The local cinema in Kingston and Richmond do not cater well enough. I did not realise this until my husband became profoundly deaf a few months ago.
Almost all screens @BroadwayCinema transmit audio description and it has made going to the pictures a joy
I'm going to the cinema today to re-watch Molly's Game with subtitles!!!!! I'm so excited that I'm going to be able to understand the entire film. Thank you british cinema for providing me with this 1 showing at a suitable time Thank you ... really helpful
I love your website – been with you for well over 15 years – I remember finding out the first Lord of the Rings film at Uxbridge and travelling all the way across London on the tube to go and see it! Me and my best friend go to the cinema once a month! I publicise it with every sign language student I teach, Levels 1 to 3! You have given me hundreds of hours of enjoyment. I have been lucky in Southend, no hassles at all. The one time subtitles did not show, The Book Thief, my best friend got up and went to the manager and made them start the film again with subtitles! She is normally not assertive but said when it comes to deaf rights it is a different matter! Many thanks
We went to see “The Darkest Hour” at cinema last Friday - I had audio description headphones, excellent film which was greatly enhanced by the audio facility, I would absolutely recommend it.
Fantastically useful website - thank you!
i think it's funny how some are overtly against cinemas showing movies with subtitles, which would help deaf ppl and non native speakers, because they think "it's hard to read and watch the movie" while non-english speakers were watching subtitled movies since we were 5.
At last I can access local subtitles films as I have very bad hearing - keep this up and extend coverage as there are so many of us who have been disadvantaged for so long - also unite with all local private companies as they have not 'got' this large potential , on the whole older group in need of entertainment thanks again
Thank you @yourlocalcinema I love your app and weekly emails. Thank you so much for the work you do. It would be great if the cinemas caught up and improved access. Thank you �
Many more HERE
