    "Great site that gets updated regularly with the latest hollywood movies. It also includes subtitles for some foreign films for any interested. Overall, a good source of subtitles."

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that the first feature-length film with subtitle was released in 1927 in Paris, France? This film is the classic "The Jazz Singer" publicly introduced with French subtitles. In 1929, another Al Jolson film, "The Singing Fool", was produced in Danish subtitles. Though the need for subtitle was due to the lack of sound capture, these films were actually one of the first movies produced with synchronized recorded speech, musical score, and lip-synch singing. As early as the 1900s, a man named M.N Topp patented the use of a sciopticon, a type of slide projector, to apply subtitles on the screen. However, due to the innovation of sound film, moviegoers can now hear the actors so the subtitling method slowly faded away. It only came back into the light when the producers of foreign films realized that paying for the creation of subtitles cost less than actual dubbing.

Today, subtitles are no longer "alien" to the entertainment industry. In fact, you can watch movies with subtitles and TV shows and download subtitles online. It is so high-demand that one can find a lot of subtitles sites when browsing. In fact, movie streaming sites will now allow you to watch movies in theaters at home for free that also offer the option to watch with subtitles. Who knew that a once-complicated process can turn to something simple?
