The new “lux” cinema in Heidelberg does not offer subtitles and therefore is not accessible.
Education and knowledge for deaf people is hence not available.
The new “lux” cinema will open in Heidelberg, Eppelheimer Strasse, in March/April 2017.
I have read that there will be a barrier-free access, but if the movies will not be screened with subtitles, there will still be barriers for the deaf.
We are promoting education for the deaf and thereby want the movies to be screened with subtitles. We know that the deaf or aurally handicapped students, that visit the SRH school in Neckargemünd, would love to go to the movies but can´t, because of the missing subtitles.
We would like to talk to the mayor to promote education for the deaf.
