After winning the Oscar for Best Picture last Sunday, Apple TV+ has decided to re-release the film CODA in theaters as of April 1st. The movie will be available in over 600 theatres in the United States and be presented in Open Captions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing.
CODA also won two more Oscars during the 94th Academy Awards, which include Best Supporting Actor for Troy Kotsur‘s performance, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Siân Heder, as the 2021 film is based on the 2014 French film La Famille Bélier by Éric Lartigau.
In a statement, Erica Anderson, film distribution exec for Apple Original Films and Apple TV+ said that “As our industry recognizes CODA with its highest honor, we’re excited once again to bring this moving film to theaters so that audiences can share in the experience of watching it together. As with previous theatrical runs, all showings will have open captions, so that the film is accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities.”
You can also watch CODA on Apple TV+ if you haven’t already, as it has been available on the streaming platform since the second week of August.
