Omniplex cinemas to provide subtitled movie screenings

A cinema chain is to show weekly subtitled movies for the deaf and hard of hearing.

The 22 Omniplex cinemas in Ireland will also provide sensory screenings for children with autism.

A statement from the chain says they believe cinema should be accessible for all - and anyone with a disability should be able to see a newly released movie, with as much freedom as possible.

We have received a number of requests from customers for subtitled films and been keen to cater for this demand for some time,” said Operations Director Omniplex Cinemas Mark Anderson.

“We believe very strongly that cinema should be accessible for all and anyone with a disability should be able to see a newly released movie, with as much freedom as possible.”
