Summary:InSight Cinema is a 501 c 3 non-profit outreach program based in Santa Monica, California that advocates for access and literacy through the use of captioning for Deaf and Hard of Hearing and captioned movies in neighborhood theatres. It has received support from the film industry, bringing together the Studios, theatre chains, technology companies and captioned filmgoers.

Because of its growth and the increasing demand for films, entertainment and cultural experiences that are made accessible in the captioned format, InSight has expanded its outreach to include event listings for live theatre, opera and museum information. It continues to develop its resources into becoming an all-inclusive "go-to" web domain for any and all information pertaining to captioned events in the U.S.

 The InSight Cinema Mission:

-To create awareness of the availability of Open Captioned films to the deaf, hard-of-hearing, and ESL communities.

-To increase film industry awareness of the demand for Open Captioned films and of the many groups who can benefit because we are “the audience that is reading.”

-To raise funding for InSight Cinema to expand its national outreach and advocacy efforts.
