Films are just too loud
A GREAT film (Lincoln) was spoiled for my wife and I by the intolerable volume of the sound, particularly the 35 minutes or so of advertisements at Vue cinema.
We were not the only ones suffering. As we entered a woman said: “You need ear plugs in there, I’ve just complained about it” – as my wife and I have done previously.
But I suppose excessive volume is now part of the cinema experience. If you have to sit there with your fingers in your ear, it’s not good. It’s supposed to be entertainment not torture with potential hearing damage.
The next time you go to the pictures and see a couple sitting in front of you wearing ear defenders, it might be the missus and me.
