April Meeting – Alan Kutner – Movie Captioning – Back to Jeanes!

Montco returns to the Jeanes Library!

Renovations on the Jeanes Library have now been completed and the library is welcoming our chapter back to their brand new meeting room. Our April meeting and future meetings will be at the William Jeanes Library, 4051 Joshua Road, Lafayette Hill, PA 19444 and our NEW meeting hours are 6 to 7:45 p.m. The library closes at 8 pm. We are very fortunate indeed!

 Captioning Comes to the Movies!

Alan Kutner, Chairperson of the HLA-PA Movie Captioning Committee, will be on hand to tell us about the progress his committee has made in bringing captioning to your local movie theater. Alan is a retired attorney who loves the movies. As his hearing loss became more severe, he found he was unable to understand the dialog in the theater. As many of our members know, rear window captioning has been available for the past few years at the Plymouth Meeting theater, but on only a single screen in the theater. As a result of recent court rulings all theaters must now provide captioning and we will soon have our choice of seeing captions on a screen or through hi-tech glasses. Alan will show you the different types of gadgets which show captions in major movie theaters.

Alan lives in Havertown and is a member of the Delaware County HLAA chapter. He is active on the HLA-PA advisory council and at the PA Walk4Hearing. He is an excellent table tennis player and, as a part-time actor, he is an excellent speaker.

Please join us for our next meeting which will be held on
