Movie Captioning could soon be mandated

The White House is getting ready to propose an update to ADA law that would make it a requirement that theaters install technology for deaf and blind moviegoers. Various news outlets report that the federal mandate could be out in the next couple of weeks. It will like call for installation of closed-captioning and audio narration technology. Some smaller theaters complain they can't afford the cost and could be put out of business by the new regulation.
