According to The Arizona Star, AMC Multi-Cinema Inc. has agreed to retrofit some of its auditoriums to make the shows there more accessible to the deaf and the blind.
“AMC agreed to install new digital captioning and “narrative description” technology — for people who are blind technology in two auditoriums at its lone 15-auditorium theater at the Foothills Mall and additional auditoriums at eight theaters in the Phoenix area. The chain also agreed that at least 10 percent of any new auditoriums will have the same technologies.
The move comes more than two years after the state Attorney General’s Office filed suit accusing the chain of discrimination. The deal ends the lawsuit and the possibility that a judge could fine the company and order the firm to make specific changes.”
