Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater now offers open-captioned screenings of most first-run films shown on Tuesdays. These films are presented with captioned dialogue shown on-screen to all viewers, much like a subtitled film in a foreign language.
Presenting movies with open captions makes movies more accessible to people who are deaf, hard of hearing, for whom English is a second language, or who prefer watching movies with captions.
Closed (individually-enabled) captioning and assistive listening remain available for all movies throughout the week. These services may be enabled by movie viewers by using a captioning device available at the Box Office.
The Majestic Theater at the Jennifer and David LeVan Performing Arts Center is owned and operated by Gettysburg College as a gathering place for its campus and community to celebrate the arts together.
