Lord Of The Rings Released For Sensory Impaired

Subtitled and audio described cinema, enables people with
sensory impairments to enjoy film, presented in it's original, and best form - the cinema.

Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (2001), has just been released with digital subtitles and audio description, but only ONE London cinema has the facilities to screen it.

The lottery funded Film Council board will be making a decision soon on whether or not to equip many London cinemas with these facilities. Thousands of Londoners with sensory impairments await their decision.
