Relaxed Screenings

As part of imagineNATIVE’s ongoing commitment to improving accessibility measures we offer closed captions for all films in English, two open-captioned screenings and two sensory friendly screenings.


Open Captions

These Screenings will display a text version of spoken and other relevant audio elements.

Thursday, October 24 | 10:30am | TBLB Cinema 3: Top End Wedding (pg. --)

Sunday, October 27 | 10:45am | TBLB Cinema 3: The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open (pg. --)


Sensory Friendly Screenings:

These screenings allow guests with various accessibility needs to have a positive sensory friendly and inclusive environment.

This means:

●     Theatre lights are dimmed (not completely off)

●     Theatre sound levels are slightly lower

●     No trailers or advertisements before the film

●     One can move in and out during the screening

●     Silence is not expected.
