The email posted here is a follow-up from Dan Glennon, whom Shanna and Teri have been working with to get captioning back in the theaters.
I just wanted to give you a quick follow up to the questions I left the meeting with as points to research:
As far as open captions being displayed on screen via our digital units, the technology is coming. At this point, as I understand it Hollywood is agreeing on the technology piece (much like they did with RWC/DVS) and once the technology piece is in place it will be as easy as turning on the captions on a DVD at home -pretty exciting.
In speaking with our in house technical services department I conveyed some of the information with them that you had brought to my attention (ie. population base of Olathe, etc.) and have secured a recommendation for our site as the first site for installation as well as a need for pushing the timeline forward provided AMC has any input.
Hope this info is of help and look forward to hosting you at Studio in the near future.
Are you excited to have captioning return to the Olathe theaters? I sure am!
