9th Open-Caption Movie

On December 14th, 2012, DOCM (Deaf Open-Caption Movies), viewed “The Hobbit” for it’s 9th deaf event. As we close 2012, we’re excited to announce 7/9 movie events were sold out. It shows that the community likes the movies that have been picked every month. Thanks for a great year 🙂

The Hobbit is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. While the book was originally one volume (as opposed to the three Lord of the Rings books), director Peter Jackson decided to divide The Hobbit into three separate movies. So how was the first movie of the trilogy? Fantastic! The Hobbit is filled with action, adventure, and 3D animation that you can find in the Lord of the Rings movies. The film certainly ranks up among the other top action movies of the year: The Avengers and The Dark Night Rises. The plot was a bit more childish than the former three movies, but the adventure was equally thrilling. As always, the graphics were stunning.

As we close 2012, we would like to give one more special thanks from DOCM and the Deaf Community to Brandon Wheeler, Manager for Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Stone Oak. Brandon has been a huge part of our events all year long. His tremendous support for the deaf community has been a blessing to us. Brandon, you are and will always be awesome in our eyes. Thank you!

Also as we close the year 2012, we applause Michael for all his hard work with creating, making and promoting our monthly DOCM flyers at the San Antonio College Interpreter Program and Facebook. We know we would not have been so successful for informing the community about our monthly movie events if it wasn’t for you. Thank you!

Important News: The monthly DOCM movie events has been relocated to another theater. The new location will be at the Alamo Drafthouse at the Park North. Friends in the Deaf Community suggested to Joe and Michael that this would be the best theater. Lately the movies have been sold out, and this theater is bigger! The more people come, the merrier the events will be. We will love to see our events to expand. So please be aware of the new change starting in January 2013.
