Angel Studios’ Film SIGHT Committed to Including Everyone in the Theater Experience 

By Using the Latest Technology Offerings in Theaters, SIGHT and Other Angel Titles can be Viewed by Those with Hearing, Vision, and Other Physical Challenges

(Provo, UT—May 20, 2024) Angel Studios is honored to partner with many of our theatrical exhibition partners in using the latest technology to bring the film SIGHT to all viewers, even those with sensory issues such as hearing and vision loss. SIGHT shares the true story of Dr. Ming Wang, who’s passion to bring hope and vision to a young orphan revolutionized the medical industry with a groundbreaking new surgery.

“Dr. Wang’s life is an inspiration to all, and Angel is passionate about following in his footsteps and bringing this story, through a theatrical experience to everyone,” said Brandon Purdie, Executive Vice President and Head of Global Theatrical Distribution at Angel Studios. “Because of this, our team is committed to working with our exhibition partners so all audiences can share in the impactful experience of escaping our daily lives to be fully present in stories when presented at a movie theater.”

One of Angel Studios’ exhibition partners is B&B Theaters, who have gone to great lengths to make sure that everyone can have a positive theatrical film experience. “B&B Theatres believes in five core values: family, fun, innovation, joy, and integrity. In many ways, those values can be summed up in a single word: inclusion,” said Paul Farnsworth, Executive Director of Communications and Content at B&B Theatres.

He continues, “Everyone deserves the chance to enjoy the magic of the movies, and we are working hard to create innovative and progressive solutions so that all guests feel welcome, accommodated, and comfortable when entering our facilities. These efforts include things like free sensory backpacks, adult changing stations, Step n Wash stools, open captioning and sensory showtimes, nursing areas, and so much more. We have created custom employee training pieces in conjunction with Kansas City Behavioral Health to help our team members with basic American Sign Language and Spanish, as well as empowering them with appropriate techniques for offering specific service to guests with challenges who might require or appreciate special attention. We are always on the lookout for sustainable ways to continue to enhance experiences for all of our guests!”

SIGHT follows the true story of Dr. Ming Wang, a Chinese immigrant who defies all odds to become a world-renowned eye surgeon in the United States. Drawing upon the grit and determination he gained from a turbulent uprising in his upbringing, Dr. Wang sets out to restore the sight of a blind orphan. SIGHT will launch in over 2,000 theaters nationwide May 24, 2024.
