Special Services (Audio Description and Listen Everywhere App)

Listen Everywhere, an assistive listening app that patrons can download to their personal cell phones, is available at all screenings. When coupled with the patron’s headphones or ear buds, the app provides high-quality audio streamed directly to the patron and can be adjusted for volume preference.

Select films will be audio-described for visually impaired persons at no extra charge. Audio description allows patrons to hear a scene-by-scene narration of the on-screen action while they listen to the movie dialogue. For more information, contact Elena Perantoni at (614) 469-1045. Films being audio-described in 2023 are:

  • Hitchcock's Rear Window (Saturday, June 17 at 7:30 pm)
