Future HLAA Albany Events:
Saturday, May 6, 2017 , “HLAA Goes to the Movies,”
Bow Tie Cinemas of Saratoga, 19 Railroad Place, Saratoga Springs
Join your HLAA friends for an afternoon of movie going
as well as an opportunity to test out a variety of hearing assistive devices.
Please join us on May 6th as we watch a movie and use one of the hearing assistive devices that Bow Tie Cinemas currently has on hand. You can choose from FM transmitters and headphones, or use your own neck loop with headphones. Additionally, the theater has a number of cup holder supported adjustable captioning devices. The captions can be placed in the line of view just below the screen image for ease of reading.
If you choose the captioning option, you can attend whatever movie is currently playing that offers captioning. It is very important to RSVP by May 3rd, so that we can assure moviegoers that they will have access to their preferred device.
Free parking is available with either surface lots or the garage nearby. See the downtown Saratoga Springs website for a map. We will plan to meet at the theater at 1:00. Or, you may choose a different time on your own by exploring the theater schedule, which will be posted on their website by Tuesday May 2nd. Some may find it more convenient to head to the Wilton or Schenectady venues. Please let use know what you think about the devices at any theater after you have tried them.
We’ll see you at the movies!
