Movie Theatre Captioning

Have you been to the movies lately?

AMC, Loew's, Clearview Cinemas offers Open Caption movies for us!!!!

CaptionFish is a new website that shows all the available Rear Window Captioning and Open Captioned in your area. Its been out quite sometime for those of you that didn't know.

Here are some websites you can checkout:

www.captionfish.com

www.fomdi.com

www.movietickets.com ( this place only shows Rear Window Captioning)

www.fandango.com ( only shows Open Captioned)


For each website all you have to do is click on the links above and type in the search box ( once your on the website) what zip code you live in and movies will appear.

What is the Difference between OPEN CAPTION AND REAR WINDOW CAPTIONING???

OC- ( OPEN CAPTION) is Captions that are visible without using a set-top decoder or a TV with a built-in decoder chip. When a video is open captioned, the captions are permanently part of the picture. Its on the big screen in the movies.

Rear Window Captioning- ( RWC) You are given a translucent plastic reflector that fits in the cup holder of your seat and you can adjust it so that it reflects the reverse captions from the back wall so you can see them.


Hope this Helps!!!

What a great idea! I haven't seen this at all in Canada. That would be incredibly, especially on movies with people speaking in accents.

Thanks!
