If you love the theater or going to movies but can no longer enjoy them because you miss too much of the dialog, then read on!
Many theaters have listening systems to help you to hear better. So, the next time you plan to go and enjoy our local community theater or take in the latest movie, call and ask whether they have a listening system for you to borrow during the performance.
We have compiled a list of theaters and what they have as of February 2018. If you know of a theater not listed that has a listening system, we would love to hear from you.
