All IFC Center auditoriums are ADA accessible and have designated wheelchair and companion seating.

Assistive listening devices are available for use in all auditoriums for all screenings; audio descriptive (AD) listening tracks, closed captioning (CC) and open captioning (OC) will be indicated where available.

Look for the indications below on our film pages to see if the desired technology is available for a particular film or screening:

Assistive Listening. 
Assistive listening devices transmit and boost the volume of the film through headphones. This technology is available in all theaters and for all films.

T-Coil.  Assistive listening devices that work with hearing aids to boost the volume of films through a receiver worn around the neck. This technology is available in all theaters and for all films.

Descriptive Audio. Descriptive audio narration describes the visual setting and action as it happens on the screen along with dialogue. Look for this indication to see if a desired film has descriptive audio. Not all films have descriptive audio available.

Closed Captioning. Texted captions – like the closed captions displayed on a TV – on a single device that mounts in your cup holder. Look for this indication to see if the desired film has closed captions. Not all films have closed captioning available.

Open Captioning. Texted captions displayed on screen for the duration of the feature presentation. Look for this indication to see if the desired film has open captions. Not all films have open captioning available.

All devices can be checked out at the IFC Center box office (inquiries can additionally be made in the IFC Center lobby) where our staff will be more than happy to help you! Devices are loaned out at no charge. Please note that descriptive audio and closed captioning tracks are not available for all titles. If you have any questions, feel free to email
