accessibility

You don’t need special skills or training to be able to laugh and cry at a film with the rest of the audience. Cinema arts provide our society’s cultural touchpoint and serve as its greatest common cultural denominator. Films can engage, entertain and educate, regardless of your age, gender, religion, socioeconomic status or cognitive and physical abilities. At The Tull Family Theater,  we believe cinema should be an arts option more easily enjoyed by patrons who live beyond metro areas.

In an effort to make films and facilities accessible to all patrons, The Tull Family Theater will continue to learn about and expand its technologies that will enhance the patron experience. Service animals are welcome at The Tull Family Theater.

Patrons Who Have Hearing Loss

Please call The Tull Family Theater box office in advance at 412.259.8542 to reserve Assistive Listening Devices. We want to ensure that if you could benefit from using ALD, one is available for you for the particular screening you plan to attend.

If studios provide closed captioning, a personal hand-held unit available at the theater can enhance your experience.

Patrons Who Have Mobility Challenges

Ramps are available from both Walnut Street, the “front door” entrance of the theater, as well as from the Green Street municipal parking lot next to the theater.. Both of our screening rooms, plus the Esmark and Bouchard Family Community Room and our restrooms, are physically accessible.

If you’d like to make use of a wheelchair-accessible seat, we’d appreciate a heads-up so we can ensure that one is available for the screening time you’d like. Please call the box office in advance, 412.259.8542.

Staff is available for assistance at every event. Our accessibility coordinator is Ben McGroarty,  director of theater operations.

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.
