Accessibility

The Film Center is fully ADA accessible.

Both of our theaters are equipped with hearing loops. Switch your hearing device to T-Coil program to use, or request a headset and transmitter from the box office.

We also schedule open-captioned screenings when materials are available. Click here for a list of open-captioned showtimes.

We strive to make our theater convenient for guests who use wheelchairs or mobility devices and their companions. Spaces have been designated to accommodate two wheelchairs or mobility devices in each auditorium, providing unrestricted sightlines. Up to four companion seats, if needed, have been set aside next to each wheelchair-accessible area. If contiguous seats are not available, companions will be seated as close as possible to the accessible location. We ask that all patrons respect the needs of our patrons who use wheelchairs and their companions with the understanding that they may be asked to relocate if sitting in one of the designated companion seats.


Open-Captioned Screenings

The Gene Siskel Film Center will schedule open-captioned screenings when materials are available. This page will list any upcoming captioned showtimes.

Our theaters are also both equipped with hearing loops. Switch your hearing device to T-Coil program to use, or request a headset and transmitter from the box office.

Note that many screenings without open-captions are subtitled in English with dialogue in other languages.
