Accessibility at Cinema/Chicago

Cinema/Chicago is committed to fostering an inclusive and accessible environment at all of our programs and events. All event venues are fully wheelchair accessible, with no-step entrances or ramp access, and elevators. All venues offer wheelchair-designated spaces, companion seating, easy-access theater seating, and accessible restrooms.

All of our foreign-language films have English subtitles. Virtually screened English-language films will have Closed Captions when available, and select in-person English-language films will screen with Open Captions. These screenings will be announced and publicized on our website and program guides. ASL interpreters will be made available upon request for filmmaker Q&As and panels, as well as Assisted Listening devices when compatible.

Please submit any accommodation requests at least 1 week prior to the scheduled event.

We strive to provide an enjoyable viewing experience for all patrons. We invite feedback on how to better improve our accessibility practices to accommodate a broader, more inclusive audience for all our programs.
