New in­no­va­tion at movie the­atres

The Daily Courier - - LETTERS -

Dear Ed­i­tor: I’m fol­low­ing up on the let­ter “Art of enun­ci­a­tion” (Courier, Nov. 24).

Hear­ing loops or FM sys­tems only ben­e­fit those with some hear­ing loss. The newish Land­mark Ex­treme Cin­ema in West Kelowna is the only lo­cal the­atre to pro­vide cap­tion­ing de­vices to pa­trons who are deaf or hard of hear­ing. The small screen on a flex­i­ble wand fits into the drink holder to en­able the user to watch the movie and read the cap­tioned speech at the same time without im­ped­ing other view­ers.

This in­no­va­tion means that my deaf hus­band and I can en­joy a film to­gether for the first time since we met, al­most 40 years ago. Check be­fore­hand to make sure that the film you wish to see has the closed cap­tion sym­bol (CC) on the list­ing. Most movies are cap­tioned. Pauline Landry West Kelowna
