REGAL has generously scheduled a surprise open caption showing of Star Wars The Force Awakens THIS Saturday (Jan 9th) at 4pm.
We may not be as fortunate to have Hawaii’s law of two OC showings per week of every movie (see link for more info: Hawaii New Law Requires Theaters to Offer Movies with Open Captioning), but we are sure trying to make a change for our Missouri and Kansas deaf/hoh movie goers and their family and friends!
Now you have choices of THIS Saturday (Jan 9th) at 4pm at Regal
NEXT Saturday (Jan 16th, 2:30pm) 2:30 at B & B Theatres.
May both OC events be successful and thank goodness for choices!
OC advocacy was directed at multiple theaters and B&B responded sooner for NEXT Saturday and REGAL responded later, but for THIS Saturday and Regal has already placed it on their schedule.
Regal’s special showing will include Open Captions! The dialog will appear under the film. No closed captioning devices and no Sony Entertainment glasses are needed.
Bring everyone you know to help us show theaters that people want equal access to movies and do not have to worry about CC devices not working. Just grab your popcorn and drinks – sit down and relax like everyone else!
Number of seats in auditorium is unknown at the time of this posting. Will update the number of seats when information is available.
The TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE NOW.
All ages: $6.04 each
