About Audio Described Screenings

Each season, an audio description track will be available for a selection of our films. Audio description is a service for partially sighted or blind people, and is similar to listening to a cricket or football match on the radio – the action is described to you.

Our cinema is equipped with infrared audio description equipment. The film soundtrack comes through the main cinema speakers in the usual way, while a recorded narrator explains what’s happening on screen through personal headphones. 

To reserve an AD headset please email boxoffice@exeterphoenix.org.uk or give us a call on 01392 667080.

Please note, audio description has to be actively produced by the film’s distributors who have to decide to pay someone to write and record the audio description track. Some distributors (Warner Brothers for example) have a policy of providing an audio description track (and subtitles) for all their films. Other distributors may never provide this service.
