Get all movie theaters to have closed captioning sign now

Since most movie theaters in the U.S.A. dont have closed captioning/subtitles for the deaf and the hard hearing, we need to take action and make sure no deaf/h.h. person is left out, including me, so we all can enjoy the movies, so we dont have to wait until it comes out on DVD/VHS. Some theaters do provide closed captioning but 70\% do not. Nobody knows how we feel about that, and it really hurts to think about the fact that everybody is out there having their time watching new movies while we have to watch something on TV and wait half a year to rent the DVD/VHS, and that is just not fair to us. The deaf feel left out because no one had the consideration to put in some closed captioning for the movie theaters, which would be really nice, but no one even did that, and not for a long time. Somebody needs to do something about this problem, or else it isn't going to solve itself, and if most of the popular movie theaters in the USA had closed captioning the number of visitors would increase, including the deaf, and that equals profit, think about that. I thought the movie theaters were contributing to the audience, but they are not, they dont even think ahead, and they didn't even think about the deaf, which is not a good thing, and somebody, the US Congress, the goverment, whoever, has to take care of this so we the deaf and the hard hearing, and the others who are on our side, can have a good time at the movies!

    If all theatres had closed captioning, I'll be patronizing theatres much more than I do now. Now I tend to go to foreign films that have English subtitles. Otherwise, I wait until the film's out on DVD or video to use the closed captioning feature on the
