Facilities for the Hearing Impaired

We are pleased to announce that our theatre has acquired Assistive Listening Devices –  solutions that overcome the challenges of noise, distance, clashing conversations, and hearing loss to deliver precise and personalized audio in any setting or environment. These systems require use of headsets which are available, free of charge, at the lobby concessions counter on a first-come, first-served basis.

Patrons borrowing headsets will be asked to leave a piece of photo ID or credit card (as a form of security deposit) which will be given back when the undamaged headset is returned, following the performance.
