Regal, AMC, and other movie theaters: Provide Open Captions in movies for Deaf people

It isn't fair for deaf people to use captioning glasses or a captioning screen because it would always not work. Also, captioning glasses are too heavy! After a movie is finished, the glasses would leave red marks on your nose because they are sometimes too tight and they're always too heavy. When watching a movie, from my experience and others, you would have to tilt your head sideways while wearing these CC glasses. Our necks would be hurting once in a while and it feels that we don't have rest because the captions on the glasses are too crooked and wouldn't appear on time when a movie is starting. It frustrates how deaf people would feel embarrassed coming into a movie theater when hearing people are looking at them because they are deaf. Also, it frustrates how most deaf people will have to leave a movie while its playing when the captions aren't working. Deaf people want to enjoy coming into a movie theater and would rather have open captions because it would not cause problems for deaf people. Hearing people should understand that it's not fair that they can hear and understand what the movie is saying or when something funny comes up, they laugh with the movie, but for deaf people, it's hard for us to capture everything what the movie is saying because we can't hear and wouldn't know when to laugh along with the movie. When we pay for a movie on a specific time and day that provides captions, we want to be able to enjoy the movie instead of complaining how the captions on the glasses or a small screen device wouldn't work.
