Cinema's Help For Film Fans Who Are Deaf

Cinema's Help For Film Fans Who Are Deaf

The Showroom has become Sheffield’s first deaf friendly cinema – with subtitled movies every Monday – and now has a deaf volunteer to meet and greet you in the afternoon and evening every Monday.
Adele Johnston , who uses either British Sign Language ( BSL ) or lip reading to help customers says “I am here to make sure you receive full support at the cinema. My role is to make sure you are comfortable and enjoy your time. I work in both the cinema and the bar/café. If you’re struggling with something, I can support you.” View Poster

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
