We want you to go enjoy open captioned (OC) movies in Pittsburgh! Email your request to Link by 10 AM on any day for any movie.
VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: NAD Attorney Debra Patkin is standing inside the NAD Headquarters lobby. The NAD logo appears on bottom right corner as a watermark.
DEBRA: The NAD has long advocated for captioning access at movie theaters, whether its via open captions (OC) when text is displayed on the screen for anyone in the theater to see or via closed captions (CC) when text is shown through individual devices. SouthSide Works Cinema in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania had refused to provide captions so the NAD sued them. Through negotiations, SouthSide Works Cinema has agreed for six months to provide OC movies upon request. Deaf and hard of hearing people can watch any movie with OC turned on, but must inform SouthSide Works Cinema which movie on which day at which time they want to watch with OC. They will turn on the OC for any movie, on any day, at any time as long as you make your email request before 10 AM on the day you wish to see the movie. So for example, if you wanted to watch a movie at 4 PM on Friday, you can make your request at any time prior to 10 AM on Friday.Â You could request at 6 AM on Friday or even Thursday or Wednesday. It's easy, you just need to email your request asking for OC movie for a specific movie on a specific day for a specific showing. We encourage you to go enjoy OC movies at that theater if you are in Pittsburgh! Thank you!
