Insight Cinema (formerly Tripod Captioned Films)

The purpose is to provide deaf and hard of hearing, English as Second Language and Literacy program patrons with access to a broader range of cultural, educational and social experiences by making it accessible through the promotion of captioning, to promote public awareness of their needs, and to educate the public on effectively communicating with the members of these respective communities, and all others that might benefit from the use of captioning. InSight Cinema is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the big screen movie-going experience to the 30 million deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) and English-as-a-second-language (ESL) audiences in the United States. A mailing list is available. InSight Cinema has created a 3-way partnership with the major studios and all major exhibitors. This 10 year-long outreach program serves a liaison between the DHH community and the major studios by increasing efforts to distribute Open Captioned prints to mainstream theatres. Currently there are 150 dedicated theatre programs in place.
