Open Captioned Screening Expansion in Washington, DC

Since fall of 2018, DC Deaf Moviegoers has pushed for legislation in Washington, DC to require a portion of movie screenings to have open captions for deaf and hard of hearing moviegoers as well as others who benefit from captions so there can be true accessibility. The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), which has opposed this kind of legislation across the country, also opposes it in DC. Due to DC Council's budgeting process, if the bill became law, it would not become effective until October 1, 2020 at the earliest.

In the meantime, NATO has attempted to selectively use privately-held data to argue against this kind of legislation in Hawaii and elsewhere. In DC, under the threat of legislation, they are increasing access with more open captioned screenings on their own terms. They have not proceeded with agreement from the deaf and hard of hearing community and related consumer groups about how to gather and use data. DC Deaf Moviegoers does not support the self-serving nature of this expansion and will continue to push for legislation as the only way to maintain access. We and others have experienced too many incidents where changes in staff, management, or ownership have become obstacles in setting up open captioned screenings.

While we continue to push for legislation, if there are open captioned screenings in DC, we will share their availability to you. Starting on July 12th, the following movie theaters will have two weekend OC screenings for each movie during its first two weeks:
• AMC Georgetown 14
• AMC Mazza Gallerie
• Angelika Pop-Up at Union Market
• Landmark Theatres Atlantic Plumbing Cinema
• Landmark Theatres E Street Cinema
• Landmark Theatres West End Cinema
• Regal Gallery Place 14
Open captions is the only truly accessible approach at the movies. Problems with closed captioning devices, where the devices exist, are a worldwide issue, and deaf moviegoers are unable to have access at the movies equal to that of their hearing peers. Open captions need to be part of society's accessibility DNA, and to that end, we will continue to push for an OC law in DC. Below is the DC legislation, and we encourage you to contact your DC Councilmember.

Please follow the new bill and look at the screenings!

Do You Have Children Who Love to Read? Do You Have Children Who Don’t?
“Charlie and Frog” by Karen Kane is the perfect book for both!
A hearing child and a deaf child team up to solve a mystery. There is exposure to the deaf community, and each chapter has a picture of a different sign!
Kane is a sign language interpreter at Gallaudet University and also gives talks at local elementary schools, and the illustrator is a deaf gentleman she recommended to her publishers.
The story is adorable, and the message is great for all! For your own child, your niece/nephew, or your neighbor’s kid, this book is a Must!

Betabrand has dress pants that are made from yoga pant material. They combine elegant styling with soft, stretchy performance knit. Their dress pants come in boot cut, straight, jean, skinny, cropped, tuxedo, and six-button, all in a variety of colors.
I own a pair of bootcut myself and I adore them! They are crazy comfy while looking sleek, stunning, and professional. To get these lines, though, they don’t have any pockets, which is a bit of a disappointment. But the Travel Yoga Pants have FIVE pockets! Two zippered pockets int the front, two back pockets, and one hip pocket that is perfect for cash and cards. And most importantly, when you wear them, you feel like a million bucks!
Betabrand also sells tops, outerwear, skirts, dresses, shoes, bags, and more! All with hidden and helpful pockets, cuteness, and most importantly comfort!
Share if you have a pair of these Dressy but Comfortable pants, or plan to buy some!

To Infinity and – Hold On -

A Message from DC Deaf Moviegoers to "DC Deaf moviegoers,

Regal Gallery Place's plan to show more OC screenings without the need for DC Deaf Moviegoers to request them has been postponed to July 12th.

As part of this, they are canceling the OC screenings that we did not request. However, the ones we requested, listed below, are still taking place. If you already bought a ticket to an OC screening that is no longer listed, we encourage you to get reimbursed, by getting a refund and also vouchers to make up for that inconvenience.

Last we checked, the additional OC screenings are still listed as OC on Fandango and Regal websites. We do not know when those will be updated and can only pass on what we've been told.

We apologize for the confusion. We originally got confirmation that this was truly happening, and we dislike sharing last-minute changes that deprive deaf moviegoers of accessible options. We will be in contact with the theater to see what they will do for the weekend of July 12th.

Our original requests that will still remain open captioned are the following:

Friday, June 21, 8:35 PM
Men In Black International

Saturday, June 22, 2:00 PM
Toy Story 4

Saturday, June 22, 8:15 PM

Thanks,

Erik Nordlof of DC Deaf Moviegoers"
