Folks, just got off the phone with Angelika Mosaic. They will have an open caption film at 3 pm on Sunday. The title is probably "The Assistant." Unfortunately the relay conversation was closed and the history wiped out so can't double-check which film. It is not posted on their website yet and the management has to contact their IT department to fix things.

And just got off the phone with AMC Hoffman. They will have Birds of Prey open caption on Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 pm. They said the website will be updated within an hour.

01/18/2020

Late additions: Just got an email from Hoffman. They are going to offer a 2:15 open caption for "Like a Boss" tomorrow, and a 2:15 open caption for Underwater on Monday (which is a holiday). They tried but could not get the other 2 which had been requested.

Folks, if you're expecting Regal Potomac Yard to offer an open captioned movie this weekend, it's not going to happen. Last weekend's open captioned Star Wars at Regal Potomac Yard was just a substitute for DC Gallery Place; Regal has no intention of permanently offering open captioned movies at Regal Potomac Yard.

In comparison, AMC Hoffman in Alexandria is very committed, the Angelika Mosaic in Fairfax is committed, University Mall and Cinema Arts in Fairfax are committed.

Folks, another Star Wars option! AMC Hoffman has just posted Star Wars for 1:25 pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

12/18/2019

Great news!! JUST got word from Regal that the Potomac Yard theater will ALSO have Star Wars open captioned on Friday at 2pm AND on Saturday at 2 pm!

12/17/2019

Are you hearing and do you refuse to watch videos without captions? If so, you should be demanding open captions in movie theaters!

Hey folks, University Mall has a holiday wish: 6,000 likes on their page! If you have ever enjoyed an inexpensive family friendly open captioned movie there, could you help them get their wish by liking and sharing their page?

Exciting news! Got word that there will be an open caption Star Wars on December 19th (that's Thursday) at 8:20 pm at the Regal Potomac Yard! We did not set this up; Regal did it themselves as a substitute for Gallery Place (can't do it there that night)!

12/04/2019

Just had a response from AMC Hoffman. Despite trying, they could not get a "prime time" screening of Frozen 2 for Saturday but they got the next best thing - a 5:20 pm screening! and on Sunday, a 2:50 pm screening of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Neither is posted yet on AMC Hoffman's website, but watch for them to appear.

12/02/2019

After what happened last weekend with nothing being shown OC, asking Hoffman if we can have a prime time screening of Frozen 2 this Saturday night, along with another screening on Sunday afternoon of Beautiful Day. No promises, but will post an update when they respond.

Folks,

UPDATE: AMC Hoffman responded to email at almost 11:00 pm last night. They have added one OC screening of "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" on Sunday. That's great that they are so responsive after we email....BUT....the point is...we should NOT have to be sending emails just to get a screening that had been previously requested! Part of the problem that we are dealing with, is that Hoffman keeps scheduling the non-OC screenings first, and then adding in the OC. It doesn't matter how many times we explain that OC should be scheduled at the same time; this is their method of operation and we have to deal with it. The problem for us is that their method of operation creates stress for us when something like this happens. We need a law for the state of Virginia.

EARLIER:
You may have noticed that this weekend, there is only ONE open captioned movie at AMC Hoffman. They have a new general manager. General managers keep changing and no wonder; the pay they receive is low compared to how much work they do! The current GM seems less supportive and less aware of open captions.

We're sick and tired of this. This is maybe the fourth general manager we've had to deal with since AMC Hoffman started offering open captions Every time there's a new General Manager at a theater, there's always the risk of a reduction in open captioned offerings. So far we have been lucky with Mosaic but even Mosaic had had some changes of general managers.

This is why we need a law for open captions in Virginia. To make a minimum number of open captioned screenings mandatory so no matter what happens with theater management, our choice of open captions would be protected. Then our choice would not be subject to the whims of whomever is currently the general manager of a theater.

Once again, this is the petition for open captions in movie theaters: tinyurl.com/ocmoviesnow Every signature counts when demonstrating that the demand and support for open captions exists.

Movie Theaters - Open Captions (Subtitles) Are for Everyone!

Update 2: No further response from Hoffman.

Update: Hoffman responded positively. Continue to stand by.

Folks, talking to amc Hoffman to see about pre sales for frozen 2 and star wars. Stand by.

11/10/2019

Folks, if you want to see this weekend's surprise #1 hit, "Midway," you will have to go to Cinema Arts Theatre today (Sunday, November 10) for the 4:15 pm open caption screening of "Midway." Once in a while there are surprise hits like "Midway." It was not expected to do this well! This is the advantage of having a theater like the Cinema Arts willing to show as many movies as possible with open captions regularly.

11/05/2019

Folks, we don't know what happened with Angelika Mosaic this week, because no open captioned screening has been posted for Sunday. However, the Mosaic does have a foreign subtitled film, "Parasite," that has been getting rave reviews. And in addition to the usual open captioned offerings, AMC Hoffman also has another foreign subtitled film, "Isa Pa With Feelings," that is about a deaf man teaching a girl sign language.

Here are this week's listings. Check back frequently because this will be updated as theaters post their offerings on their websites.

Folks, we just hung up a phone call with Angelika Mosaic. There may or may not be an open captioned screening at Mosaic this weekend. For some reason this week, it did not get programmed. We told them it is not too late, and the person we talked to said she would talk to the general manager as soon as we hung up.

Why did passing rates on state exams for English learners plunge in Virginia?

This article from the Washington Post is an example of why we need a law in Virginia to require open captioned movies as an additional option. Low passing rates for students learning English. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/why-did-passing-rates-on-state-exams-for-english-learners-plunge-in-virginia/2019/09/02/971d160a-bfa3-11e9-b873-63ace636af08_story.html

64 percent passed state reading tests in 2016-2017. Two years later, it fell to 35 percent.

Update on the Hoffman situation! Just had an email from a new manager there. The former manager left and did not inform us that they were leaving! That explains why the email sent in the middle of the last week asking for OC this past weekend, was disregarded with no response. It was not just our error, Hoffman had a change of managers. The new manager is unfamiliar with the process of getting OC movies but is working with the booker.

This is yet another reason why we need laws to require open captions in movie theaters. By having laws that make it an ingrained part of the process, changes of management would not have any impact.

Message this page directly if you would like to help get a law for open captions in the state of Virginia!

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).

How and where do I check for open captions for Little Women?
Hello friends... a question was raised about what's it like to watch an OC movie in 3D? Yes, we've always seen OCs in 2D, but what does it really look like when you watch a 3D movie in OC with those special glasses?? I tried to find some answers in YouTube but found nothing of it. Can you share any experiences or tips?
In preparation for the Star Wars movie... the Smithsonian Air Space Museum IMAX has OCs only on Sunday, Dec 22nd, which I cant make it. Hopefully there will be one or two OC's in NOVA during a weekday? I may dress up as a Star Wars character... (shh, I'm not telling). Most importantly, need clarification in advance from any movie theater allows you to bring light sabers, but definitely no toy weapons allowed due to security reasons (one of my sons will be Han Solo), and what about masks... they may need to be taken off before entering the theater or entering the theater when at the ticket validation gate? Thanks!
i would love to see movie Avengers next month not this weekend
Will we have Shazam OC next weekend??
Do you know if Glass will be playing OC anywhere?

Jonathan Pie has arranged for captioning for the 7 pm show in DC - https://www.jonathanpie.com/live/. Who wants to come too? They will send the text to your iPhone tablet and provide a music stand for the tablet, and save us seats (otherwise it's General Admission). I've let them know that my tablet and phone are Android and I'm waiting to hear back. So far they've been very accommodating. Jonathan Pie is very funny and riffs on American politics. Will be a fun night, the night before elections! Let me know if you're coming so I can arrange for our seating. https://www.jonathanpie.com/live/
Does anyone know if there's a group like this for the Hampton Roads/Tidewater Virginia area, esp. the Peninsula? I'm moving there in a few weeks and while I've been visiting, I've had the hardest times seeing movies there. (The Movie Tavern in Williamsburg totally fails to have caption devices that work. Like, we've had to talk with managers numerous times because literally NONE of their devices work.)
Hello Everyone, I would love to see this movie coming out soon with captions. Anyone else interested in this movie?
