Adding CSS to show Gallery content title on mouse hover

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://fuchsia-mouse-tr82.squarespace.com/

I'm looking to replicate this site and have the title of each thumbnail appear on mouse hover. 

I've gotten as far as getting the css identifier which is 

.collection-type-gallery #thumbnails .thumb img:hover {
  opacity: 0.5; }

But I'm not quite sure how to pull the title for each clip and format it to be centered over the thumbnails on mouse hover. 

Could someone help me out with this?

The title is pulled from the Youtube URL (attached) for each item in the gallery view. I don't have the option to add captions like in a typical gallery - when I hover over the gallery and click edit, it opens up the sidebar where I can only upload the images/videos or access settings.

Not sure if this is a template limitation.
