AMC Theaters Structured NegotiationsCollaborative Efforts between DRA, ALDA, and AMC Result in AMC’s Commitment to Install Closed Captioning Technology at its Theaters throughout California.
Leveraging our success in ALDA v. Cinemark, we achieved a similar result with AMC Theaters on behalf of the Association of Late Deafened Adults (ALDA). In 2011, on the heels of our settlement with Cinemark, AMC agreed to offer closed captioning for 127 screens in California by mid-2012, and projects that number to grow to over 500 screens by late 2013. Plaintiffs are represented by DRA and Co-counsel John Waldo.
