Two Bills introduced for access to movies

Two bills were introduced last week in Congress which would greatly expand access to the movies for individuals with #disabilities.  The first proposal is to amend the #ADA to require #movie #theaters to offer closed #captioning and #audio-descriptions of movies to allow people with #visual-impairments or #hearing-impairments to enjoy the experience like anyone else. The #accommodations would be required at all showings at movie theaters that have two or more screens.  The second bill would mandate #captioning and #narration on all airplanes where in-flight video entertainment is offered.
