Better late than never!
Subtitled Return of the King will be available from around Jan 10th.

Only cinemas with digital subtitle facilities will be able to screen it. But just because they can, doesn't mean they will... so please ask your nearest suitably equipped cinema to screen it! (locations below).

The audio described version will be available a few weeks later. Exact dates/locations will be announced on the website as soon as they are available.

Happy New Year from Subtitles @ Your Local Cinema!

We cannot 'force' a cinema to enable deaf people to enjoy their services, we can only ask them to. And we do, constantly. It's our job to create awareness of the problem, suggest solutions, and to empower people to do something about it. We recommend that people contact cinemas in their local area and request better access for people with sensory impairments. Request that they become 'accessible', by installing a digital subtitle system and screening the latest releases with subtitles regularly.
