Assistive Devices & Technology
Film Streams Accessibility Assistive Listening

Assistive Listening

Both the Ruth Sokolof Theater and Dundee Theater are equipped with the Fidelio wireless assisted listening devices for hearing or visually impaired. The Fidelio delivers descriptive narration for the visually impaired and or amplified sound for the hearing impaired. 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.

Film Streams Accessibility Closed Captioning

Closed Captioning

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.

Open Captioning is available for some new releases, and in those cases we will work to accommodate requests for such screenings. Additionally, we frequently show international movies, all of which are accompanied with English subtitles.

Film Streams Accessibility Hearing Loop

Hearing Loop

As part of our 2017 renovation of the Dundee Theater, Film Streams installed a Hearing Loop system in the venue's main auditorium. With this technology, wiring installed within the theater's flooring transmits an audio signal directly to patrons with telecoil-equipped hearing aids.
