What is OC - Open Captioning?
Welcome to Northern Virginia Open Captioned Movies. We will share information here about scheduled open captioned movie screenings, polls, and news about new theaters offering open captioned movies in Northern Virginia. Open captions are similar to subtitles, with the words right there on the screen. No special equipment is needed, making it a more comfortable viewing experience and enabling enjoyment of the film from any seat in the theater. If you are learning English as a second language, are a senior citizen or a veteran with minor hearing loss, a child learning to read, have autism, learning disabilities, or attention challenges, open captions may help you. Maybe you have no hearing loss but captions help you understand in a noisy theater or when an actor has an accent. Or, like many people do, maybe you just plain like open captions (like the subtitles on Netflix).
