Been waiting ages to post that somewhere online !
Cinema sound is horribly loud, last film I saw in cinema was Avenger's Assemble and that was bordering deafening back then. Thank god for orange wednesdays with the price too.
I think my hearing is starting to decline anyway, TV can be pretty loud in our house because of a family members partial deafness and I think the boy damaged my hearing a little screaming into my ears when he suffered with colic for about 2 months last year, ever since then things have been quieter and I struggle to hear in loud environments like our server room / pubs or anywhere theres a lot of people/background noise

Used to work in a multiplex back in the era of films like Jurassic Park.
Time between shows doesn't allow you time to clean properly so you pick up the worst. The number of kids that puked on the opening night and we'd just pour some disinfectant on it and spray air freshener.
To save money on prints they used to run and interlock system basically as the film cones out of one projector it feeds onto the platter of the next opening night we had 4 way interlock going, what a nightmare that was especially if the film snaps :O
Worst thing ever was picking up cups and popcorn packets and picked up one if the huge drinks cups and it was full, thought they didn't drink much then realised THE CUP WAS WARM arrrrrrgh

Do you remember the Point in MK? Watched many a good film there.
The old Electra in Newport Pagnell was an amazing venue for a while, they would even have bands - The Damned played there, and they were very loud (as you would expect).
I have slight tinnitus in my left ear now, probably from too many gigs...
It was worth it :-)

Spent many a romantic evening watching a film at the Point with mrwITch when we first met. I only lived in MK for a short time but mrwITch was born in Newport Pagnell - I will ask him about the Electra
