I just saw the show tonight and noticed that there are subtitles on the back wall. But they're backwards, so I'm confused as to why they are there and why they are viewed backwards. Has anyone else noticed this?

It is a closed captioning system. Folks that need captioning get a special set of glasses, that picks up the projection, which in the glasses is not backwards.... :)

Nice system, it is used in movie theaters all the time.

It works like a rearview mirror system.

On a related note, a few times while doing the TOT video, there were subtitles. Do you request to have them turned on? I've noticed that on the top of that monitor there is a "CC" logo.
