Making Cinema Accessible for Everyone

Posted 28 July 2017 about Subtitled Mondays.

Showroom Screen 4

At the Showroom, we’re passionate about fantastic films from all over the planet. We do our best to share these fabulous film finds with you, to help them reach a wider audience. Part of our commitment to this, is making cinema accessible to all.

There are lots of ways we do this, including screenings for parents with babies, dementia friendly screenings, autism friendly screenings and our Cine26 low-cost film ticket. We also have a long-term commitment to making our cinema a welcoming place for people that are d/Deaf or Hard of Hearing. We offer an infra-red hearing support system for deaf and Hard of Hearing people. This is available every day, and you can choose a necklace aid or an in-ear system. What’s more, every Monday, we show films with d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing subtitles across our entire programme, all day.

On Monday 31 July, the programme of d/Deaf & HOH subtitled films will be:

Baby Driver: 18.20

The Beguiled: 20.50

Dunkirk: 13.45, 16.05, 18.25, 20.45

Despicable Me 3: 11.30

The Big Sick: 15.30, 18.05, 20.40

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie: 13.45, 15.50

We also provide equal opportunities for people that are blind or experiencing sight loss. Audio Description headsets are available on box office every day, and we do our best to programme plenty of screenings for films which accommodate this service.

Throughout the week, you can pick up an audio description headset for any of these films:

Baby Driver

The Beguiled


Despicable Me 3

The Big Sick

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

We hope that this service allows more people to come and see great films, when they are released. If you have would like to chat about any of our accessibility measures, please do get in contact with us. We are available on Twitter, Facebook and in person on our Box Office!
