Cinemark and Regal Go Captioned

Here are some links to the news. Cinemark has decided upon the Doremi CaptiView system, while Regal hasn’t specified the technology. [Sony Entertainment Access Glasses with Audio are announced as the choice at CinmeaCon 2012 – Ed.] Cinemark had ongoing lawsuits with the Association of Late-Deafened Adults (ALDA), which are going to be dropped, according to the announcements of ALDA.

Regal will also be working with the website development group and Captioned Movies Search Engine site CaptionFish to help promote the services to their customers.

Regal Makes Seattle America’s Most Accessible Movie City

“Unfortunately, not every theater chain is following the lead of Regal and Cinemark. AMC theaters, America’s second-largest chain, continues to take the position that it will equip some but not all of its theaters to show captions. We are currently in the process of addressing that question in our Seattle lawsuit, and would hope for a favorable ruling, a change in AMC’s corporate position, or perhaps both.”

The suit is brought by The Association of Late-Deafened Adults (“ALDA”) on behalf of its members with hearing loss, and two individual plaintiffs.  The plaintiffs are represented by Disability Rights Advocates (“DRA”), a non-profit disability rights firm headquartered in Berkeley, California that specializes in high-impact cases on behalf of people with disabilities and John Waldo, a lawyer whose practice focuses on the unique legal needs of the Hard-of-Hearing and Deaf. He works on access and advocacy issues through the Washington Communication Access Project (Wash-CAP), www.hearinglosslaw.com
