Subtitles in a Theater?


Well-known member
I would love if movie theaters had subtitles as a standard rule. Sometimes, I find it very hard to hear what actors are saying, and it really takes away from the experience. I haven't been to any theaters that have subtitles on a film yet, but it would be great if it was more common.

I think that depending on the movie, it could be really distracting to have subtitles on a film. I'm not saying that it shouldn't happen at all in a theater, but I think for some movies it could take away from the experience.

I would love to have subtitles on films in the theater. There could be showings set aside to have subtitles, and showings without subtitles, so that way people had options.

Having subtitles in the theater won't be possible, but I would prefer it that way too. I'm speaking from my experience since I haven't encountered subtitles in cinemas. Sometimes the sounds are too loud, so I can't understand the words clearly.

It would annoy me to death, but I can see why they should consider doing it, since it could help those who are hard of hearing.

It would annoy me to no end too. I think the sound in the theater is too loud most times. I think subtitles would take away from the movie. Of course that is just my opinion.

I'm a no too. I think more people would dislike this feature and that means they won't do it. I know some theaters do show movies with subtitles. You might just have to wait for the movie to come out on DVD or a streaming service and watch it at home.
