Landmark Theatres is committed to providing a quality entertainment experience for our deaf, hard of hearing and vision impaired guests by offering several options depending on available content and needs. We are able to provide Alternative Listening Devices, which use Infrared Technology at all of our locations for every type of film. In addition, we also offer a personal closed-captioning system and an enhanced audio system for content that is made available by distributors. Some of our locations are also able to provide a Hearing Loop system for our guests with a T-coil hearing aid. You can learn more about these solutions below.
Hearing Loop is an induction loop system which magnetically transmits the auditorium sound to compatible hearing aids. Our guests who have hearing aids with T-Coils can link directly into the theatre sound system at the touch of a button on their hearing aid. This delivers our guests a crisp and clear sound free from background noise and no headset is required. Hearing Loop is available at The Landmark at 57 West, New York City, Landmark’s Renaissance Place Cinema, Chicago, Embarcadero Center Cinema, San Francisco, and Aquarius Theatre, San Francisco Peninsula.
CaptiView is a personal closed captioning device which transmits dialogue to a small easy-to-read personal screen which attaches right to your seat. The device features a privacy visor to prevent distractions to others in the auditorium. Closed captioning availability is subject to the content made available from distributors. Not every film is enabled with the content necessary for closed captioning.
Fidelio is a wireless audio system that delivers descriptive narration for the visually impaired and hard of hearing guests. 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. Not every film is enabled with the content necessary for descriptive narration.
CCR-100 is a personal closed captioning device that receives and displays captions via infrared energy. This device fits into the cupholder of your theatre seat. Closed captioning availability is subject to the content offered from distributors. Not every film is enabled with the content necessary for closed captioning.
IRH-280 or IRH-281 Headphone Receiver is a two channel Infrared headphone that delivers descriptive narration, known as Descriptive Video Services and can also enhance dialogue for the hearing impaired. You can switch between 2.3 or 2.8 MHz and there is a volume control for each ear of the headset. Not every film is enabled with the content necessary for descriptive narration.
