Overview of Information Collection 1. Type of information collection: New information collection. 2. The title of the form/collection: Requirement that Movie Theaters Provide Notice as to the Availability of Closed Movie Captioning and Audio Description. 3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: Form Number: None. Component: The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Disability Rights Section in the Civil Rights Division. PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59657 4. Affected public who will be required to comply, as well as a brief abstract: Affected Public (Primary): Businesses and not-for-profit institutions that own, operate, or lease a movie theater that has one or more auditoriums showing movies with closed movie captioning and audio description, and that provide notice of movie showings and times. For purposes of the proposed rule and this notice, ‘‘movie theater’’ means a facility other than a drive-in theater that is used primarily for the purpose of showing movies to the public for a fee. Affected Public (Other): None. Abstract: The Department’s Civil Rights Division, Disability Rights Section (DRS), is requesting PRA approval of a new collection that would require movie theaters to disclose information to the public regarding the availability of closed movie captioning and audio description for movies shown in their auditoriums. On August 1, 2014, the Department published a notice of proposed rulemaking amending its ADA title III regulation, 28 CFR part 36, to specifically require movie theaters to provide closed movie captioning and audio description for patrons with hearing and vision disabilities (NPRM). 79 FR 44976. The NPRM proposed a new information collection requirement that is the subject of this notice. Proposed § 36.303(g)(5) stated that ‘‘movie theaters shall ensure that communications and advertisements intended to inform potential patrons of movie showings and times, that are provided by the theater through Web sites, posters, marquees, newspapers, telephone, and other forms of communications, shall provide information regarding the availability of closed movie captioning and audio description for each movie.’’ Movie theaters’ disclosure of this information will enable individuals with hearing and vision disabilities to readily find out which theaters are showing movies with these features, and the times those movies are being shown. All public comments on the NPRM supported the inclusion of a notice requirement in some form. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 1,876 respondents will be required to disclose information concerning the availability of closed movie captioning and audio description in their existing communications concerning movie showings and times. However, this number includes movie theaters that show analog movies exclusively. In the NPRM, the Department sought public E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1 mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 59658 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 168 / Tuesday, August 30, 2016 / Notices comment on whether it should defer application of the proposed requirements for theaters with auditoriums that show analog movies exclusively. If the Department decides to defer coverage of analog auditoriums, then the number of respondents may drop. DRS estimates that all of the approximately 1,876 respondents will comply with this requirement. Based on a review of current movie theater communications, it is estimated that an average of 10 minutes per respondent is needed to update existing notices of movie showings and times with this information. The Department acknowledges, however, that the amount of time it will take a respondent to comply with this requirement will likely vary because the amount of time necessary depends on the number of movies that the respondent is able to show at any given time. Frequency: The Department anticipates that movie theaters will likely update their existing listings of movie showings and times to include information concerning the availability of closed movie captioning and audio description on a regular basis. The Department’s research suggests that this information would only need to be updated whenever a new movie with these features is added to the schedule. This will vary as some movies stay on the schedule for longer periods of time than other movies, but the Department estimates that movie theaters will update their listings to include this information weekly. If, in the future, all movies are distributed with these features, specific notice on a movie-bymovie basis may no longer be necessary, and a movie theater may only need to advise the public that it shows movies with closed movie captioning and audio description. 6. An estimate of the total annual public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 16,259 hours. It is estimated that respondents will take an average of 10 minutes (1⁄6 of an hour) to update their existing listings of movie showings and times to include this information and that such updates will occur weekly for new movies that are added to the schedule. The total annual public burden hours for disclosing this information sum to 16,258.67 hours (1,876 respondents × 1⁄6 hours × 52 times a year = 16,258 and 2⁄3 hours). Assuming a movie theater spends 10 minutes each week to update its notices of moving showings and times to include this information, the average movie theater firm will spend 8.67 hours annually (1⁄6 hour × 52 times) VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:04 Aug 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 performing the necessary tasks to comply with this requirement.

Overview of Information Collection

    1. Type of information collection: New information collection.
    2. The title of the form/collection: Requirement that Movie 
Theaters Provide Notice as to the Availability of Closed Movie 
Captioning and Audio Description.
    3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the Department sponsoring the collection:
    Form Number: None.
    Component: The applicable component within the Department of 
Justice is the Disability Rights Section in the Civil Rights Division.
    4. Affected public who will be required to comply, as well as a 
brief abstract:
    Affected Public (Primary): Businesses and not-for-profit 
institutions that own, operate, or lease a movie theater that has one 
or more auditoriums showing movies with closed movie captioning and 
audio description, and that provide notice of movie showings and times. 
For purposes of the proposed rule and this notice, ``movie theater'' 
means a facility other than a drive-in theater that is used primarily 
for the purpose of showing movies to the public for a fee.
    Affected Public (Other): None.
    Abstract: The Department's Civil Rights Division, Disability Rights 
Section (DRS), is requesting PRA approval of a new collection that 
would require movie theaters to disclose information to the public 
regarding the availability of closed movie captioning and audio 
description for movies shown in their auditoriums. On August 1, 2014, 
the Department published a notice of proposed rulemaking amending its 
ADA title III regulation, 28 CFR part 36, to specifically require movie 
theaters to provide closed movie captioning and audio description for 
patrons with hearing and vision disabilities (NPRM). 79 FR 44976. The 
NPRM proposed a new information collection requirement that is the 
subject of this notice. Proposed Sec.  36.303(g)(5) stated that ``movie 
theaters shall ensure that communications and advertisements intended 
to inform potential patrons of movie showings and times, that are 
provided by the theater through Web sites, posters, marquees, 
newspapers, telephone, and other forms of communications, shall provide 
information regarding the availability of closed movie captioning and 
audio description for each movie.'' Movie theaters' disclosure of this 
information will enable individuals with hearing and vision 
disabilities to readily find out which theaters are showing movies with 
these features, and the times those movies are being shown. All public 
comments on the NPRM supported the inclusion of a notice requirement in 
some form.
    5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of 
time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 1,876 
respondents will be required to disclose information concerning the 
availability of closed movie captioning and audio description in their 
existing communications concerning movie showings and times. However, 
this number includes movie theaters that show analog movies 
exclusively. In the NPRM, the Department sought public

[[Page 59658]]

comment on whether it should defer application of the proposed 
requirements for theaters with auditoriums that show analog movies 
exclusively. If the Department decides to defer coverage of analog 
auditoriums, then the number of respondents may drop. DRS estimates 
that all of the approximately 1,876 respondents will comply with this 
requirement.
    Based on a review of current movie theater communications, it is 
estimated that an average of 10 minutes per respondent is needed to 
update existing notices of movie showings and times with this 
information. The Department acknowledges, however, that the amount of 
time it will take a respondent to comply with this requirement will 
likely vary because the amount of time necessary depends on the number 
of movies that the respondent is able to show at any given time.
    Frequency: The Department anticipates that movie theaters will 
likely update their existing listings of movie showings and times to 
include information concerning the availability of closed movie 
captioning and audio description on a regular basis. The Department's 
research suggests that this information would only need to be updated 
whenever a new movie with these features is added to the schedule. This 
will vary as some movies stay on the schedule for longer periods of 
time than other movies, but the Department estimates that movie 
theaters will update their listings to include this information weekly. 
If, in the future, all movies are distributed with these features, 
specific notice on a movie-by-movie basis may no longer be necessary, 
and a movie theater may only need to advise the public that it shows 
movies with closed movie captioning and audio description.
    6. An estimate of the total annual public burden (in hours) 
associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated 
with this collection is 16,259 hours. It is estimated that respondents 
will take an average of 10 minutes (\1/6\ of an hour) to update their 
existing listings of movie showings and times to include this 
information and that such updates will occur weekly for new movies that 
are added to the schedule. The total annual public burden hours for 
disclosing this information sum to 16,258.67 hours (1,876 respondents x 
\1/6\ hours x 52 times a year = 16,258 and \2/3\ hours). Assuming a 
movie theater spends 10 minutes each week to update its notices of 
moving showings and times to include this information, the average 
movie theater firm will spend 8.67 hours annually (\1/6\ hour x 52 
times) performing the necessary tasks to comply with this requirement.
