Caption subtitled

Captioning is a service for hearing-impaired or Deaf people.

At HOME, we programme caption subtitled theatre performances for selected productions. This service usually involves the dialogue and other sound description being displayed on an LED screen on either side of the stage. We have reserved seating for caption subtitled performances in order to provide the best sight lines. If you require the use of this service, please email access@homemcr.org in order to reserve your seats.

We also provide caption subtitled screenings of films when possible. These screenings have a transcription of the film’s dialogue in English along the bottom of the screen and a description of the sound in the film is also included in these captions. We have a dedicated caption subtitled film slot every Thursday in the early evening plus other captioned screenings at various other times.

Please note, caption subtitles have to be actively produced by the film distributors. Some distributors have a policy of providing this service for all their films. Other distributors may never do so.

Our programme contains many films subtitled into English from other languages. These may also be suitable for Deaf or hearing-impaired customers but won’t always include additional descriptions of sounds. The below events only include captioned events. You can find a wide selection of subtitled films listed in our cinema website section.
