The Astor Theatre is now better equipped to accommodate patrons with hearing and visual impairments with the addition of new accessibility devices designed to enhance their movie-watching experience.

The box office now has devices that provide individual personal subtitles on a screen and headsets so those visually impaired can hear descriptions.

To use them you simply need to ask a box office staff member when you arrive for the device you need and they should be able to help set you up.

Currently, the devices are just for movies.
