Open Caption Sessions

The Ritz is now holding weekly “Open Caption” sessions. Open Captions are text with sound description displayed on the screen to allow all patrons to enjoy movies together.​ 

There are two main differences between subtitles and open captions:

  • It is in the same language as spoken on screen.
  • There is also some sound description included e.g. “loud bang” or “jazz plays lightly in the background” etc.

 
The key benefit of OC is accessibility. Accessing movies via open captions is best practice. Unlike hand held closed caption devices, captions for OC are up on the screen. This allows for:

  • Ease of viewing for people who are Deaf, hard of hearing or hearing impaired, senior citizens, children learning to read, people for whom English is a second language
  • Superior comfort and ergonomics for tall and short people, people with poor/low vision and people who are susceptible to migraine headaches and vertigo when looking at caption devices.
  • A deaf-friendly atmosphere where deaf people and hearing friends and family can socialise and enjoy movies together.

Not all films are offered in the open caption format so we won’t be able to show everything, but most are and we will be selecting some every week to show on various days/nights.

To find out what session is Open Caption this week, check below. It will also be tagged on our weekly session flyer and on our session times page as OC.

Due to programming restrictions we will be announcing what film is OC for that week on Monday nights along with the rest of the weekly programming.
