We’re told some folks love the glasses, and some don’t.

Many of us would select open captions.

Thanks to Shanna and Terri for this lively report, with photos!

      Background: Captioning choices now that we know about for movies/cinema include — Open Captioning (OC), Sony glasses (also glasses in Italy that are different, only for Italy), Rear Window, and Captiview (Company is Doremi). Outside of USA, captioning is often called subtitles, and when we view a foreign film, we say subtitles too :-). Opera performances in many cities around the world use theater captioning now (a different sort of system), sometimes in more than one language. Theaters and cultural centers (lectures, presentations) are also offering real time quality captioning in some places.
