Aloha State Association of the Deaf

History made today! Hawaii passed a bill to require open captions in movie theaters! However, we still need that petition at https://tinyurl.com/ocmoviesnow because this bill is only for Hawaii. Theaters in any other state can still deny open captioned screenings or refuse to show open captions at all. https://www.facebook.com/ASAD.Hawaii/videos/416656415796496/

sharable.

Mahalo Hawaii Deaf community for huge accomplishment. HB1009- Open Movie Captioning has passed the floor and it will go to the Governor for his signature.

This weekend's NoVA triple: If you missed it last weekend, another chance to see Avengers, courtesy of Angelika Mosiac on Sunday; if you already got your fill of Avengers last weekend, choice of a thriller on Saturday ("The Intruder") or a comedy on Sunday ("Long Shot."). Links in comments.

04/24/2019

Reminder! This weekend is the opening weekend for Avengers, and NoVA is one of the few places nationwide that has it with OC on opening weekend! Alexandria's AMC Hoffman theater is offering not one, but two, open captioned screenings of Avengers: Endgame this weekend! See the events.

Folks, there was some kind of snafu with Angelika mosaic this week and they did not post their Sunday offering until late last night. They are offering an oc screening of hotel Mumbai at 1:30 pm on Sunday.

Rest assured mosaic is very dedicated to open captions. So much that they are now promoting open captions in their weekly newsletter! Here is a screenshot of that promotional blurb. Love the colors!

Sign the Petition

While you struggle to decide what you will see this weekend (12 choices is quite a few!) , please take a minute to sign this petition for open captioned movies! Others are not as fortunate as we are. For example, In New York, they could not get open captioned Avengers screenings for opening weekend. Here is the Change dot org petition to sign and share!

Movie Theaters - Support Open Captions!

04/07/2019

AMC Hoffman in Alexandria did it! We have not one, but TWO open captioned screenings opening weekend for Avengers; Endgame! Both on Saturday and Sunday at 3:45 pm! It is scheduled later than usual because Celebrate Communication is on Saturday April 27 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Springfield Town Center! AMC Hoffmann is being very nice about letting us have opening weekend screenings! We have heard of other areas being denied opening weekend screenings for Avengers: Endgame. Not only did Hoffman give us opening weekend, we also have advance sales! Strongly urge you to GRAB the tickets now before others do, this is selling out everywhere! Events already created and links to events in the comments. You might want to email AMC Hoffman to say "Thank You." Their email address is [email protected]

04/05/2019

Folks, we want to warn you that with Avengers:Endgame selling out already (it does not come out until April 26) we will be lucky if the AMC Hoffman lets us have even one screening on opening weekend. Please be prepared for the possibility we may not get opening weekend.

Just saw Captain Marvel. Damn good. Tomorrow's screening at AMC Hoffman is the last one with open captions.

03/14/2019

Folks, due to the Facebook issues we are unable to publish one of the planned events for the weekend. This weekend we have:
Two chances to see Captain Marvel if you missed it last weekend!
1. Angelika Mosaic (Fairfax) on Saturday at 1:30 pm
2. AMC Hoffman (Alexandria) on Sunday at 1:45 pm

And we have one OC screening of "Wonder Park" for the families at AMC Hoffman on Saturday at 3:30 pm!

Instead of links to the Facebook events in the comments, we are putting Fandango links in the comments. When Facebook is well again we will replace with the Facebook events.

Captain Marvel movie has now pre-sold about as many tickets as Avengers. This movie is expected to be a sellout in many places. Plenty of good seats still available at Angelika Mosaic for March 16! Everywhere else, the good seats are already taken.

If you are anticipating the Captain Marvel movie, STRONGLY encourage you to get your tickets now because it is selling very, very well and it doesn't open until next week. If you wait until next weekend, you may not be able to get the seats you want. A check of area theaters shows the best seats are largely already taken. Two Northern Virginia theaters have been offering Captain Marvel open captioned presales for weeks now: AMC Hoffman and Angelika Mosaic. Hoffman is offering an OC screening on opening weekend, and Mosaic has one on the following weekend. If you buy tickets at Hoffman, go early to get a good seat. Mosaic will let you reserve a seat so you do not have to go early to get a good seat. The picture below is of presales at Regal Springfield; it is used as an example to show how high the demand is. Links in the comments to the two Open Caption screenings of Captain Marvel in Northern Virginia.

We don't have any theaters showing open captioned movies in Fairfax County on Saturdays. Should we approach the only other theater in Fairfax that is supportive of open captioning, the AMC Tysons Corner, to ask if they would be willing to have regular open captions on Saturdays? Link to poll in the Nova OC Movies Group in the comments. (You may have to join the group to be able to vote)

Holy (fill in with your favorite curse word)! Another email from Angelika Mosaic! Copied and pasted below is what they wrote!

...decided to change this offering of once a month to every week. Starting next week we will designate a show time between 1-5pm every Sunday for OC. You will see it on our website once show times get uploaded, which is usually by late Monday evenings...

EVERY WEEK!! NOT ONCE A MONTH!!

Now you see why I started this post with Holy...!!

Update on negotiations with Angelika Mosaic. First the bad news: they cannot do every weekend. Then the good news: they are not opposed to having a regular schedule. We might get monthly or we might get biweekly.

Now the best news: they will have an open captioned Captain Marvel screening on Saturday March 16 at 1:30 pm!

02/07/2019

Currently negotiating with Angelika Mosaic to try to get regular open caption screenings there. Have some misunderstandings to clear up first, but hope to have a deal to announce soon. If they agree, most likely the screenings would be for second or third weekends of a movie.

02/07/2019

Still very early but AMC Hoffmann has promised an open captioned screening of Avengers 4 when it opens! It is so early there are no screenings, OC or otherwise, posted yet on their website.

Dear TV: I Have a Closed Caption Habit (And Apparently Many Others Do, Too)

This article on TVLine is a good example of why hearing people are becoming more accepting of open captioning at the movies. It is not a big leap from closed captioning to open captioning. https://tvline.com/2019/01/23/why-watch-tv-with-closed-captioning/

Dear TV, I have a monkey on my back, and he’s chattering at me in 72-point Tahoma. Meaning, my hearing is fine, and yet I’m a bit of a closed captioning addict.

01/23/2019

Just got off the phone with AMC Hoffmann. They will offer the Upside at 1 pm on Saturday and Glass at 2:30 pm on Sunday. Waiting for the Open Caption offerings to be posted on their website so events can be created, but this is a heads-up.

01/20/2019

Folks, just had an email from Hoffmann. Apparently the open captions for today's Escape Room screening did not work. So they are going to change the 12:30 screening for Sunday to be open captioned. AND they also mentioned there is a second open caption screening of A Dog's Way Home on Monday! So now I have to make two more events.

01/10/2019

Tonight, gave Cinema Arts and University Mall homemade posters to explain open captioning to hearing customers. Had a big surprise at the Cinema Arts! They have a CODA named Danielle (CODA means adult Child of Deaf Adults) working there at the ticket counter! I asked if she could work at the time of Open Caption Sunday, and she said yes!

Here's the advance list for Open Caption Sunday! Shutdown bargain at University Mall. Considering going to see Bohemian Rhapsody, keep hearing good things about it. Any families that haven't seen Grinch yet, here's your chance to take the whole family (mom, dad, 2 kids) to see it for 20 bucks or less.

As usual, good stuff at Cinema Arts too! Another chance to see Mary Poppins, another chance to see On the Basis of Sex, and more!

UMT
The Grinch 4:40
Fantastic Beasts 4:15
Bohemian Rhapsody.... not only open caption... but sing-along version

Mary Queen of Scots 5:05

01/08/2019

This weekend is Open Caption Sunday at Cinema Arts and University Mall! Waiting to get the advance list (email sent earlier tonight). University Mall is a bargain for those who may be needing an affordable escape from the shutdown. Tickets there are just $5 because it is a second-run theater.

12/29/2018

Next weekend at AMC Hoffmann: Bumblebee and Aquaman. Since many folks were out of town for the holidays this gives northern Virginians another chance to see Aquaman with open captions. Plus, Bumblebee has a high score on Rotten Tomatoes of over 90 percent. Request was sent last night, just waiting for the exact days and times.

12/22/2018

Wonderful news to share!

First, the not so good. This morning there were no open captions at the AMC Mary Poppins screening at AMC Hoffman. The theater had put the movie in the wrong auditorium.

Now the wonderful news. We waited and met with the general manager. She has agreed to open captions Every Weekend at the AMC Hoffmann!

Every Saturday and sunday. Saturdays at 2 and Sundays in the 2 to 4 time frame. One movie each day.

There will be a make-up Mary Poppins open caption screening next weekend AND on Sunday, an open caption Spiderman. They are not getting any new movies this week so we had to select those.

Finally, they were apologetic and promised no problems with tomorrow's Aquaman.

Now we have a dedicated AMC theater! And this theater is within walking distance of Eisenhower Avenue metrorail station.

12/21/2018

We don't understand what happened here. Regal again! Remember the request that was sent SIX weeks ago asking about an open captioned screening of Mary Poppins at any of five Regal theaters including Regal Potomac Yard?

We heard nothing from Regal Corporate until TODAY, December 21! Today we received an email from Regal Corporate notifying us that an open captioned screening had been set up at the Regal Potomac Yard for Saturday, December 22 at 4:15 pm.

BUT! When we went to the Regal website to check things, we found NO open captioned screening set up on December 22 but there was one on Sunday December 23 at 4:15 pm! An error??

Just had a long, exhausting phone conversation with the managers at Regal Potomac Yard. Even with all that it still isn't clear to us what is going on. I think they said they would set up open caption screenings of Mary Poppins for BOTH Saturday December 22 AND Sunday December 23. They said something very unclear about several deaf people had been asking about Mary Poppins so they decided to offer open captions "this one time."

The first person I talked to said they did not have open captioning but had the closed caption devices. Insisted I had email from Regal with a graphic showing the December 22 offering. (That graphic is below.) Then they verified the Sunday December 23 offering. Then they said they could add an open caption screening for Saturday the 22nd too.

Tried to find out when they had set up the open caption screening but communication was difficult. Then they said many people were asking about the open caption listing for December 23. So they decided to offer the open captions.

So what the eff happened here? Did they post an open caption screening much earlier and get bombarded by deaf people who noticed it? Or did Regal set up an open captioned screening for December 22 and fail to communicate it to the theater as well as us? Did the open caption screening get set up on Thursday and we didn't get notified until today? We are so unclear on what happened here. All we know is:

There are definitely open caption screenings happening at Potomac Yard this weekend. Both on Saturday and Sunday at 4:15 pm! Both are posted on the Regal Potomac Yard website.

12/19/2018

Amc Hoffman has offered to hold an open caption screening of aquaman on this Sunday Dec 23 at 445 pm. Just accepted the offer and am waiting for it to be posted on their site.
