directly from cinema head offices, but we can take NO responsibility for

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 are some available films never screened?"
"Why can't my local cinema screen the latest subtitled releases?"

Let us explain...

An estimated 5 million people in the UK use subtitles to enjoy films and
although subtitles are the norm on TV, DVD and video, silent movies are
