Open Captions are text with sound description displayed on the screen to allow all patrons to enjoy movies together.

We refer to them as Open Captions and not subtitles as this means captions with a language that is different to spoken language. It is not the same as Open Captions/Closed Captions which are the same language but with sound description added.

Benefits of Open Captions are:

  • Ease of viewing for people who are Deaf, hard of hearing or hearing impaired, senior citizens, children learning to read, people for whom English is a second language.
  • A deaf-friendly atmosphere where deaf people and hearing friends and family can socialise and enjoy movies together.
  • Superior comfort and ergonomics for tall and short people, people with poor/low vision and people who are susceptible to migraine headaches and vertigo when looking at caption devices
