This soggy weather is perfect for watching movies.
We feel fortunate to have seen "Closer" with open captioning at the Mann Glendale Exchange 10 Theater at 182 N Maryland in Glendale.
Movies are so loud these days yet you can hardly hear the dialogue.
It's especially frustrating for the hard of hearing and deaf communities. Happily, Los Angeles has a few theaters showing films with open or closed captioning. This is the best option if you really want the full film experience as those "assistive listening devices" available at most theaters suck lemons at midnight. Half the time they don't work because the darned batteries are on the fritz or the volume's are too low. If theaters really want to improve the quality of the film-going experience, and fulfill ADA requirements, they should invest in more open captioned screening.
There's plenty of folks who would appreciate the option, including aging baby boomers who sat by the speakers at one too many rock concerts in their youth. C'mon, even Pete Townsend wears a hearing aid.
Below is a list of theaters in the LA Area with captioned screenings. You can go to Fandango and National Center for Accessible Media for a current weekly schedule of films screened with open captioning.
