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?
