I have seen multiple movies in theaters with Captions. Mostly subbed anime.

I'm trying to help movie theaters to survive. If they did what Regal's survey suggested, people would just go home and watch movies on streaming without captions and theaters would be dead.
Your prognostications aren't worth crap. I guess it was too much for you to realize that you made an error in judgement with your post based on the responses. But being the egotistical person that you are, you refuse to admit you were wrong. That seems like something you avoid at any cost.

Some people will never have any empathy for the disabled

I would love CC at the movies. I use it ALL the time when watching TV because I only have 70% hearing in my left ear and about 10% in my right ear (lost 50% due to a scuba diving accident 35 years ago - gotten worse over time).

Before my hearing loss I used to abhor CC. Now I depend on them.

It's absolutely outrageous and insulting to say I don't have empathy for the disabled because I don't want all movies to have captions on them all the time. That would be an extreme solution to a problem that is already being resolved in other ways that don't affect the quality of the theatrical experience for every viewer.

But of course, because making things easier for the disabled who struggle in ways you don't understand NATURALLY has to be seen as negatively impacting the non-disabled.

Enjoy your able-bodied superiority, and for heaven's sake, stop digging a hole for yourself. You're only making yourself look even worse

Are you reading what you write? It doesn't appear so.

Stop with the Louis B. Mayer philosophy: " I am not always right, but I am never wrong"

No, you're making yourself worse. To imply that someone either wants captions on all movie screenings, or they're hateful and intolerant, is totally unfair.

But of course, because us disabled people are the absolute worst, aren't we?

Sometimes I watch foreign movies in theaters that are in a language I already understand. Do I throw a hissyfit because *I* don't need the subtitles? No, I just don't look at them... easiest thing in the world

I pretty much keep subtitles on at home all the time, it just helps understanding what's being said, especially if its unusual accents.

That being said though, I really wish there was an option to only see dialog. I don't like seeing glass klinks or mellow music plays.

With some discs and some streamers, you may be able to choose... I think some offer a choice between "SDH" and "English subtitles" (which is what you're looking for)

When I had Netflix and was just using TV speakers I usually watched with subtitles on but since switching to UHD and a surround system I haven't used them except for Nolan films.

I do the same, even during the day. I simply donít mind CC on my blu-rays/DVDs if the occasion calls for it.

Itís one of the reasons why rewatches work better at home because so much information glosses over you at the theater.
