Subtitles @ Your Local Cinema receive accessible listings 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, which is updated daily. If they don't inform us, we can't inform you.

Many cinemas schedules are "SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTIFICATION". Sometimes a subtitled or described film is not delivered to the cinema on time. The only way to be 100% sure is to check with the ACTUAL cinema before you plan a visit. But DOUBLE check, preferably with a manager. We recommend that you should always request confirmation that a show is definitely on.


The Passion of the Christ (18) (Ireland 15pg) Subtitled EVERYWHERE.

This film was filmed in the ancient languages of Latin and Aramaic and will be shown with English subtitles wherever it is screened. Click here for dates and times in your area:

This film is EXTREMELY brutal and violent, in its depiction of the torture of Jesus. To date, two people have died from heart attacks whilst watching this film. And one has confessed to a murder!(?) You have been warned... More info on this controversial film here:

Spooky, but slightly amusing antidote: Jim Caviezel, who plays Jesus, was struck by lightning while filming. Apparently, there was "smoke coming out of Caviezel's ears!"

Subtitled films coming soon:
Troy (15), Bridget Jones 2, Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, Shrek 2, Alexander, Catwoman, Shark Tale, Thunderbirds, and many more. Full list here:


Subtitled films can come in three formats:

1) Foreign language films, with English subtitles.

These can be screened in any cinema, and have English subtitles at all times, wherever they are screened. Subtitles are etched onto the actual film print, and depending on popularity, sometimes hundreds of prints are produced.

Examples: The Passion of the Christ, Amelie, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon etc.

2) 'Hard captioned' films.

Becoming quite rare nowadays, these can also be screened in any cinema. Subtitles are etched onto the actual film print, but only 5 to 10 prints are produced. Cinema chains share the prints, and 'tour' them around their cinema sites. A subtitled show usually only plays for one day, at one time, in each cinema, before being passed onto the next cinema down the line. This is the reason why a film can sometimes take months to appear 'at a cinema near you'.

Examples: The recent Matrix, Harry Potter, James Bond and Star Wars Films.

3) 'Digitally subtitled' films.

Almost every major film is released in this format, including the films mentioned above, but only cinemas with digital subtitle equipment can screen them.

The subtitles are supplied on CD Rom disc, and are projected separately onto the cinema screen. Most cinemas with this facility screen the latest releases with subtitles two or three times a week.

Cinemas with this equipment can also provide an audio description service to visually impaired people - a narrator explains what's happening on screen, through personal headphones. It's similar to listening to a cricket match on the radio, but far more exciting!

There are currently around 50 cinemas in the UK with subtitle and audio description facilities. There will be around 110 by the end of 2004.


We cannot 'force' a cinema to become accessible so that everyone can 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 your local cinema becomes 'accessible', by installing a digital subtitle & audio description system and then regularly screening the latest 'accessible' releases. Over 170 films have been released in the past few years with digital cinema subtitles and/or audio description.

'Accessible' cinemas should utilise their 'access' systems as much as possible. Ideally, these cinemas would show one or more different subtitled films every week, with at least one daytime and evening show through the week, and a couple of daytime and evening weekend shows.

Full information on systems available from DTS and Dolby here:

Have you ever tried to lip-read Spiderman? Or an animated fish? It's not easy. Not everyone has perfect hearing and many people need subtitles to enjoy a film.

Subtitled and audio described cinema enables people with less than perfect hearing or vision to enjoy film presented in its original and best form - the cinema. Digital 'access' equipment enables any cinema to regularly screen almost every popular release with subtitles & audio description. It's available to cinemas now.

Subtitles are usually produced before a film is released in the cinema. The same basic subtitle 'text files' are later used for the DVD, video and TV release. But cinema films are rarely screened with subtitles. In 2004, 1 in 7 UK cinemas will catch up with other film media and become more accessible.
