LETTER: Open captions open film to hearing impaired

Many Kudos to Rocky Friedman for bringing captioning to the Rose Theatre for those of us deaf or hard-of-hearing people in the audience.

It has been many years since I have been able to attend due to my own loss and inability to get much use out of the headsets that amplify all the sounds, not just the words spoken. Now, with captions, I can follow the story.

We look forward to attending many more of the open-captioned movies there and encourage all others with similar disabilities to patronize the Rose.

We hope to be able to enjoy the same services up at the Uptown Theatre soon also.
