DOJ Settles Movie Theater Suit

See this AP dispatch, which begins:

A Massachusetts-based movie theater chain has agreed to alter 86 of its stadium-style auditoriums in five states to improve views for people in wheelchairs, under a settlement announced on Monday.

National Amusements Inc. also agreed that its new theaters will be designed with improved wheelchair seating.

If approved by a judge, the agreement would end the Justice Department's five-year-old lawsuit alleging the Dedham-based company violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to give the disabled seating comparable to the general public.
