Popular foreign language films, with English subtitles:

A Very Long Engagement (15)
From the director and star of Amelie comes this very different love story.
Set in France near the end of World War I, it tells the story of a young woman's relentless, moving and sometimes comic search for her fiancée who has disappeared.

The Sea Inside (PG)
Why does Ramon Sampedro (Bardem) smile so much? He says, "When you can't escape and you depend on others so much, you learn to cry by smiling." Ramon has been a quadraplegic for 28 years following a diving accident and wants to end his life. Alejandro Amenábar's deeply moving drama makes a powerful case for why he should be allowed to - and why he shouldn't. Nominated for the Best Foreign Film Oscar 2005.

House of the Flying Daggers (15)
"One of the most beautifully shot films of this year and the most thrilling".

When the last sword is drawn (12a)
Old Boy (18)
The Motorcycle Diaries (15)

Coming soon:
Pooh Heffalump, Kinsey, Constantine, Robots and more

We are sorry to report that Sideways, Son of the Mask, Hotel Rwanda, Million Dollar Baby, Assault on Precinct 13, Blade Trinity, Phantom of the Opera and Napoleon Dynamite will NOT be available in an accessible format. The distributor of each film is responsible for an 'accessible' release.

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 this 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 the files necessary for a subtitled or described film are not available, or are 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.

As soon as cinemas schedules are announced for new films, they will be listed on our website - please DON'T wait for the next weekly email – CHECK the website often! Important reschedules, time changes etc. are posted on there as soon as they are announced. You can bookmark your nearest subtitle equipped cinema listings page.

"It is not tragic to have a disability.
Disability only becomes a tragedy when society fails to provide the things one needs to lead one's life"


Around 8 out of every 10 cinema releases at any one time are available with subtitles for deaf/hearing impaired people, and audio description for blind/visually impaired people. The subtitle/description 'files' are supplied to the cinema on a separate CD-Rom and automatically synchronise with the film when played. Around a quarter of UK cinemas (132) have the necessary equipment to read these files and most of them screen 'accessible' shows every week. Full details of shows nationwide can be found here:

It's a quiet revolution in the world of sensory impaired people, thanks to the cinema and film distribution industries, technology companies, organisations representing disabled people, and the people themselves - thousands aired their views to the UK Film Council, when informed of the UK Film Council's proposal to fund 50% of the cost of cinema equipment.

Organised nationwide campaigning and publicity of accessible shows helped to bring it all together and ensure it always stayed on the agenda of the many bodies involved. All working together to make it happen - and quickly.

Spread the word: free information cards:

Why do some 'subtitle equipped' cinemas not show all available subtitled films, at sensible times?

We cannot ‘force’ a cinema to enable people with less than perfect hearing 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 regular subtitled shows.

If a cinema needs more info, direct them to our website - there's info on digital systems available, where to purchase and more.

Many articles on the subject are available to read here:

On the website:
Every subtitled film: previous, now showing and on the way
New films, locations, dates and times added regularly.
View listings by region - more added as they become available.
Video game, Theatre and DVD extra feature subtitles.

Everything you need to know on the subject:

If you are visually impaired and require audio description listings only, please email us at: or visit the audio described section at - 'Talking' website, and 'web over phone' enabled.

Subtitles @ your local cinema are the only listings service created exclusively for accessible cinema. Our service can be found wherever there is internet access - at home, the workplace, school, a library, an internet cafe, or the thousands of wi-fi spots and BT internet kiosks throughout the UK.
