Ruth Sokolof Theater:
Both the Ruth Sokolof Theater and Dundee Theater are equipped with CaptiView devices, which transmit dialogue to a small easy-to-read personal screen attached to the viewer’s seat. Closed Captioning availability is subject to the content made available from distributors. When available for a movie we're showing, "Closed Captioning" will be noted at the top of that movie's page where other film information (director, country, running time, MPAA rating) are featured.
When available, weekly Open Caption screenings of New Releases will be scheduled for weekend matinees and weekday prime time shows.
Open Captions are text with sound description displayed on the screen to allow all patrons to enjoy movies together. We refer to them as Open Captions and not subtitles as the latter refers to captions on screen that are in a different language than the language(s) spoken in the film. (Our programming includes many international films screened with English subtitles.)
Both the Ruth Sokolof Theater and Dundee Theater are equipped with wireless assistive listening devices. Our devices deliver descriptive narration for the visually impaired and or amplified sound for the hard of hearing. The system consists of a compact audio receiver with a plug-in headset, or you can bring in your own headset. Descriptive Narration availability is subject to the content made available from distributors.
As part of our 2017 renovation of the Dundee Theater, Film Streams installed a Hearing Loop system in all four of our theaters.
With this technology, wiring installed within the theater's flooring transmits an audio signal directly to patrons with telecoil-equipped hearing aids.
Accessible seating at both the Ruth Sokolof Theater and Dundee Theater is reserved for patrons using wheelchairs and their parties. To reserve your seats prior to your visit, please call the Box Office:

The parking lots adjacent to both our cinemas offer reserved accessible spots. Additional accessible parking is also available in front of the Ruth Sokolof Theater entrance along Mike Fahey Street.
