The poor condition of cinemas

I have been noticing the condition of the various cinemas when I was watching films in the last week. 

Lido was quite rundown when I watched 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'. The place felt dirty and the sound was horrendously loud. Meanwhile, at GV Great World City, when I saw 'Burn after reading', the sound was somewhat faulty. What is happening? Why are cinemas here so bad?

I also notice that many cinemas play their movies too loudly. I wonder why. It is not unlike the loudness war in the mastering of CDs. I suppose if the trend continues, will many of the audience desert the loud cinemas for the comfort of their homes?

Just be careful of touching or stepping on anything sticky in those cinemas - Thuggg.
