Subtitles on 'Toy Story'

Critic's choice: Film

January 09, 2000|By Ann Hornaday

Subtitles are not just for those grainy foreign films anymore. These days, open captioning is showing up more often in theaters for viewers who might be hearing-impaired.

Today, there will be two open-captioned screenings of "Toy Story 2" at the Loews White Marsh Theatre.

One of last year's best and most entertaining films, "Toy Story 2" is a sprightly and even touching follow-up to the 1995 hit movie that starred Cowboy Woody and Buzz Lightyear as two plucky toys who make a little boy's room come alive with screamingly funny antics. This time out, Woody is kidnapped by a greedy collector, and Buzz and the gang must think out of the toy-box to save him.

Today's shows will be at 12: 40 p.m. and 6: 10 p.m. Look for open-captioned versions of "The Sixth Sense" in February and "Man on the Moon" in March.
