Each patron is provided with a set of High Quality Stereo Wireless Headphones. Every headset is equipped with its own volume control dial so patrons can alter their volume to their liking.

The headphones can only be used with our equipment and are programmed to receive a UHF frequency from our transmitter located in the Cinema. Patrons are reminded to ensure they are on the correct channel (e.g. Blue) and that their volume control is turned up.

At the end of the film, patrons return the wireless headphones to the Cinema desk. Please note that patrons are required to deposit a credit card in their name when checking-in for security purposes. Your credit card will be handed back once the headphones are returned to the Cinema desk. If you do not have a credit card, photo ID will be sufficient.

Feel free to eat chips, munch on loud food, laugh, cry and talk if you want – It won’t disturb others watching the movie with their headphones on.
