I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that as a non-profit organization we have come to a point where we no longer have the resources to continue our services as InSight Cinema.
We will leave up this home page and all links (non profit alliances, related arts, audiologists, etc.) that do not require daily updates. We will have Fandango, Movies Tickets.com and all of the theatre links where you can find open captioned films.
We have come a very long way in 15 years and I am proud of our accomplishments and deeply grateful to all of those who made it possible: everyone from the studios, theatre chains, Technicolor, sponsors, donors, and all of our loyal patrons.
We will be monitoring emails, but will not be able to respond to all of them as we have done in the past.
There is still a lot of territory to be covered — Digital Cinema, live theatre, opera, houses of worship, and sporting venues. I will never cease to be an advocate for captioning through my work and as a Board of Trustee member of HLA-CA, a member of various film industry organizations committed to finding a workable solution for access for Deaf and Hard of Hearing people.
Open Captioned films will still be available in most of the cities we list, and you can get the show time information from the links below.
I will still be active as a captioned entertainment advocate, and will notify our loyal patrons via Newsletter of new innovations as they occur.
Again, my gratitude for all that you have done – and continue to do on behalf of DHH, ESL and remedial reading groups. You are the best!
I especially want to thank the countless people who over the years have contributed their time and effort to InSight Cinema. Without them, many things would not have been possible.
