We are sorry to report that The Libertine, Saw II, Dreamer, Domino, A History of Violence, Lord of War, Four Brothers, Oliver Twist, Revolver, Wolf Creek, Green Street, Crash, are NOT available in an accessible format. The distributor of each film is responsible for an 'accessible' release.

We receive accessible listings directly from cinema head offices. Unless urgent amendments are required, listings are updated on the website every Thursday. We take great care to ensure the listings are timely and accurate but can take NO RESPONSIBILITY for postponed or cancelled shows. If cinemas inform us of changes, we will tell you via this website. 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.

We cannot provide cinema tickets. Please contact your cinema directly for these. For suggestions, corrections or just to contact us please use our Feedback page:


UK Film Council Digital Screen Network

Thanks to the UK Film Council, around a quarter of UK cinemas will be equipped with new digital projection equipment over the next year or so. In return, cinemas will be required to show a broader range of films on a regular basis.

These systems can also display subtitles. Adaptations can be made to include audio description features too.

Subtitle and audio description 'files' are readily available for most popular cinema releases, so it is hoped that these 'access' features will be utilised, to enable hearing and visually impaired people to enjoy digital cinema.

But there's no guarantee that cinemas with new digital projection equipment will actually utilise these 'access' features. We recommend that deaf organisations / groups / individuals create total awareness of this 'access' issue, to ensure it is addressed as soon as possible.

"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"

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.
