Subtitled versions of Matrix Reloaded and X-Men 2 are available to cinemas in the 'open subtitled' format - which every UK cinema can screen. Please ask your nearest cinema to screen available subtitled films!

Subtitles @ Your Local Cinema receive subtitled listings information directly from cinema head offices, but we can take NO responsibility for postponed or cancelled shows. If cinemas inform us of changes, we will tell you via the website. If they don't inform us, we can't inform you.

Many cinemas schedules are "SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTIFICATION". Sometimes a subtitled film is not delivered to the cinema on time and cannot be screened.

The only way to be 100% sure is to ALWAYS check with the ACTUAL cinema before you plan a visit. But DOUBLE check, preferably with a manager. NEVER turn up without getting confirmation that a show is definitely on.

Studios and distributors obviously prefer the cheaper, digital solution to subtitling, which creates a problem - although subtitled and described, most films are still inaccessible to the vast majority of the people that they are aimed at - hearing or visually impaired people in the UK.

"Think of it like 98% of cinemas having a VCR player, and 2% having a DVD player, but new films are only available subtitled on DVD!"

There needs to be a lot more cinemas with digital subtitle facilities to cater for the many people who now expect popular releases to be subtitled.

The cinema industry realise this and it is planned that around 100 UK cinemas will become accessible over the next year. Watch the website for information on new cinema locations with the system installed, and cinemas plans for screenings.

In the meantime, please ask your nearest accessible cinema to screen available, accessible films! (locations below).

Many people have been enquiring as to what exactly is going on with UK subtitled cinema:

Why do we have to travel 50 miles to catch one?
Why do we have to wait months after release date?
Why do films usually only play once?
Why are some popular movies not subtitled?
