THE OMNIPLEX cinema is to provide weekly screenings for the deaf and hard of hearing along with providing sensory shows for children with autism.

22 different cinemas across Ireland including Tralee will tonight show ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’ with subtitles.

We have received a number of requests from customers for subtitled films and been keen to cater for this demand for some time,” said Operations Director Omniplex Cinemas Mark Anderson.

Children will begin to get a chance to avail of the new initiative next week when, Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ is shown to matinee audiences. These screenings will be both subtitled and sensory.

“We believe very strongly that cinema should be accessible for all and anyone with a disability should be able to see a newly released movie, with as much freedom as possible.” he said.
