A number of major cinema complexes have made the change from open captions to closed captions in recent weeks. This provides more opportunities to see captioned movies, but means captions are reliant on the availability of CaptiView units.

The new closed caption system has just been introduced at Event Cinemas at Parramatta, George Street Sydney and Maroochydore. You can still book movie tickets online for closed captioned movies, but on arrival at the cinema, you will need to visit the box office and collect a CaptiView unit.

no

America’s third largest cinema chain, Cinemark, will install CaptiView closed caption equipment for Deaf and hearing impaired patrons in all its Californian complexes by mid-2012.

A result of legal action taken against Cinemark, the settlement applies only to California but advocates are meeting with Cinemark and other chains to encourage closed captioning services in other states.
