At least half of the required open captioned screenings would be during peak movie attendance hours, which are between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on Fridays and between 12:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. At least half of the required open captioned movie screenings that do not occur during peak movie attendance hours would be screened between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Motion picture theaters would be required to advertise the availability of open captioned movies in the same manner as all other advertisements for movie screenings.
