Four cinema chains respond to access questions

Thursday, 4 March 2010 11:10am

An exemption application to the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) was lodged by Greater Union, Hoyts, Reading and Village cinemas last year. This is to provide an additional 23 cinemas with both audio description and captioning capability.  It also proposes retro-fitting the existing 12 cinema locations with audio description capability. 

As a result of that application, a number of questions were asked of the cinemas by the AHRC to help clarify various points raised by consumers and organisations in the public submission process. The responses to those access questions have now been posted on the AHRC website (Update 3). The questions that are being referred to can be found at the same location as Update 2.

The AHRC expects to make a decision by the end of March 2010.
