CHICAGO AREA THAT YOU KNOW OF. THANKS! *****
The Yorktown 18 General Cinema in Lombard, Illinois is thrilled to
announce that 102 DALMATIANS will be available this week from Friday
December 1 through Thursday December 7 with CLOSED CAPTIONING for the deaf
and hard of hearing (unfortunately the movie was not audio described for the
Showtimes for 102 DALMATIONS are:
12:15 - 2:40 - 5:10 - 7:30 - 9:55 PM
Please help us spread the word to anyone you know who might have a
loss of hearing or vision in Chicago.
The City North 14 (not using their system this week) and the
Yorktown 18 are the only conventional movie theatres in Illinois with this
technology which provides access to movie fans with a loss of hearing or
vision. There is no extra cost for the use of the special equipment
required, but the number of pieces of the equipment is limited, so we
recommend getting to the theatre at least 30 minutes in advance to increase
your chances for getting one. We also do not recommend groups of larger
than 6 users attending at one time.
*****Don't forget to pick up your captioning screen before going
into the auditorium. Movie previews are not captioned or described, only
the main feature.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could pass this email or the
information in it to your friends, organizations and readers. We need your
help and support in order to make more and more films available in this
General Cinema Yorktown 18
Located about 25 minutes west of downtown Chicago on Butterfield
Road, just east of the intersection with Highland Ave, and adjacent to the
Yorktown Shopping Center -- across the street from the turquoise roofed
Embassy Suites hotel.
***NOT SHOWING 102 DALMATIANS*****The City North 14 is located on
the north side of Chicago at 2600 N. Western Avenue, between Fullerton and
Diversey at the Kennedy Expressway.
General Cinema is proud to be the only movie theatre chain which has
installed these systems at a dozen of our theatres around the country, and
for the increased access they provide. We also have the technology in
place at theatres in Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, Boston, Atlanta,
Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Baltimore and Seattle. A new system has just been
installed in the Washington, DC area as well.
WGBH in Boston has done a great job developing this technology, and
in captioning and describing the films so well. They're working to get us
more movies than ever this year. Already we have commitments for about 10
upcoming films. Our thanks to the folks at DISNEY for making this film
available for us, and for being such wonderful supporters of this program!
*****If you'd like to be added to our email list, please send a
reply email to me at "BCallagh@..." with the word "Chicago" in the
subject box. If you'd like to be taken off our list, just type "Chicago
Delete" in the subject box.
Thank you for helping us provide access for EVERYONE at the movies.
We really do need your support in order to secure more captioned and
described films in the future. Please spread the word to your friends!
We're hoping to have an email address list of 1500 Chicago area residents by
the end of December, and need your help in developing this database.
