Hearing loss

Choose films with captions

We offer open captioning at most of our cinemas to help our hard-of-hearing or deaf audience enjoy the film. We also show a wide selection of captioned films to give you more choice.

To find these screenings on our website, select the ‘Open captions’ filter when viewing films and showtimes at your cinema.

You can also visit the Accessible Screenings website to find full listings of captioned performances at ODEON and other cinemas.

Many of our cinemas can also provide an audio induction loop (or T-coil) that connects to hearing aids. This helps our hard-of-hearing guests to receive the necessary audio description or soundtrack.


What are open captions?

Some films display captions on the screen (similar to subtitles), which aim to fill in important details about each scene. Along with the dialogue, you may see open captions for sound effects, background noises, phones ringing and other audio cues that need describing.

This helps our guests with hearing loss distinguish between different people talking, emotional changes in their voices or non-vocal audio that’s relevant to the story.
