Warehouse Cinemas Partners with Local Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community

Warehouse Cinemas, a locally owned, premium movie theatre company is offering a private tour with local advocates for the deaf and hard of hearing moviegoing community on Friday, July 31st at 11 AM. This is part of a continued effort to dialogue and bridge the gap to the 6,000+ deaf and hard of hearing members of the Frederick community to offer the best moviegoing experience possible for all!

“We’re excited to reveal our equipment and plans for better closed captioning experiences and open captioning programming.” says Kyle Kops, General Manager of Warehouse Cinemas.

Warehouse Cinemas promises no more uncomfortable and heavy CC glasses. Their QSC CCR-100 closed caption devices are made to provide each user with a simple and effective CC movie experience. An arm mounted closed caption receiver provides each user with a private display that is attached by an angled flex arm with a base and cupholder. The built-in optics present a distant virtual image to the user so the caption and movie screen can be viewed without refocusing the screen.

Along with the top of the line CC equipment, Warehouse Cinemas plans to also roll out an open caption screening program. They will offer, for example, premium open captioning access for early screenings of big films on traditional opening Thursday nights, whenever possible.
