How do deaf people watch movies in the movie theater?
The USL Closed Captioning System (CCS) is designed to enhance the deaf or hard of hearing cinema patron’s movie-going experience. A single infrared emitter broadcasts closed caption text and two channels of audio into an auditorium.
The label “CC” refers to Closed Captioning, where guests who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing may use a display unit to receive captions. For more information about Closed Captioning, please visit www.cineplex.com/Theatres/ClosedCaption.

The Differences Between Captions and Subtitles Captions can either be open or closed. Closed captions can be turned on or off with the click of a button. Standard subtitles assume the viewer hears the audio. Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing are written for viewers who may not be able to hear the audio.
