Poll Suggestion: Open Captioning (Question might need rewording or better clarifying context)

Have you been to a movie screening with the Open Captions* service?

POSSIBLE OPTIONS (working on the question first then building the list):

Yes. I've been to an Open Captions screening at the movie theater. 
No. I've never been to an Open Captions screening at the movie theater (and they are available in my area).
No. I've never been to an Open Captions screening at the movie theater. But service is not available in my area though I do want them.

LIST:  https://www.imdb.com/list/ls561437166/

POLL:  

*Open captioning is a service for moviegoers who are D/deaf and hard of hearing. In addition to moviegoers who are D/deaf and hard of hearing, captions benefit almost everyone, especially people watching movies in their non-native language, and children and adults learning to read. Source: nyc.gov

All non Spanish films in my country are subtitled besides the most popular getting also dubbed, I always go to them. But there are no special subtitles for the deaf, so my option is:

No. I've never been to an Open Captions screening at the movie theater. But service is not available in my area though I do want them.

However, I do not need a special open caption screening, subtitles are enough for me, so the last part of the answer does not apply to Me, I don't really want them.

That said, while I don't care for them, I do support if they are added for the benefit of deaf people, and I would preffer an open captioned screening rather than a dubbed one.
