Random Factoid #165

I think we all take sound quality for granted.  It is something that we expect to be a non-issue when we go to the movie theater, yet when it is lacking, the experience is tainted.

I was reminded of the importance of sound quality over the holidays when I went to see “Sherlock Holmes.”  For the first 30 minutes, all the voices sounded muffled and as if I was hearing them from a great distance away.  It impacted my ability to focus on the movie and made my ear work too hard.

Oh, and it was at the same theater that all my problems seem to occur.  AMC Studio 30.  Love the place, but it’s time to get the act together.
