The Tull Family Theater holds accessibility as its hallmark and intentionally extends its cultural offerings to those who face geographic, economic, transportation and physical challenges. The Theater welcomes service animals.

Patrons Who Have Limited Hearing or Vision

Assistive Listening Devices are headsets that amplify sound. The headsets also can be used for Audio Description, a running commentary that narrates the action taking place on the screen, if the studios embed this function.
If a film has Closed Captioning, a personal screen unit can provide typed, low-contrast captions of the dialogue.

Patrons Who Have Mobility Challenges

Ramps are available from Walnut Street as well as from the Green Street municipal parking lot next to the Theater. The entire theater is fully ADA accessible, including The Esmark and Bouchard Family Community Room, our restrooms and our two screening rooms, which each offer both stadium and sloped seating.

If you would like our staff to meet you in the parking lot, please contact us in advance, 412.259.8542, and we can arrange for that. Staff is available for assistance at every event. Email our accessibility coordinator Ben McGroarty, Director of Theater Operations, at with any questions. 

Patrons Who Have Low Vision

If studios provide Audio Description options, our technology can enhance your theater experience. Audio Description, which gives scene-by-scene narrative, is offered through an individual headset. Please ask at the box office and, if possible, provide a heads-up at 412.259.8542 so we make sure these options are available for you.
