RNID / NIFTC two minute feedback survey

What do you want from cinema?

Most popular cinema releases are available with subtitles but special equipment is needed to screen them.

The Northern Ireland Film and Television Commission (NIFTC) has offered grants to 10 cinemas across Northern Ireland to help them purchase equipment to show subtitled mainstream films.

The NIFTC would like deaf and hard of hearing people to air their views on this subject and have asked the RNID to conduct a short survey.

Please take a few minutes to complete this RNID survey. Your comments are required by 1pm, Friday 26th November.

The information given will become part of a contract that cinemas will need to agree to, before they can receive grants. The NIFTC has received 10 applications from locations including Belfast, Banbridge, Lurgan, Newry, Carrickfergus, Enniskillen, Lisburn, Omagh and Ballymena.

This is your chance to let cinema owners know the kind of service you would like!

Six questions:

 1: What kind of films would you like to see?
Examples: thrillers; comedies; family films

2: How often do you think cinemas should show subtitled films?
Once a week
Twice a week
Three times a week
More often

3: Which days of the week would you most like to visit the cinema?

 4: What time of the day would you prefer to go to the cinema?

5: How would you prefer to be notified of subtitled films showing?
Examples: local papers, daily papers, websites, email, text message, poster
in cinema.

6: Which cinema do you normally visit?
