Connecticut could be first state to curb loud movies

posted by Michael Zoldessy on March 12, 2014 at 2:45 pm

Connecticut is turning heads by proposing legislation that lower the volume in its movie theaters. They’re pushing for a maximum of 85 decibels for movies or previews but the MPAA is fighting back by saying it’s a violation of free speech.

Go to Fox News for more on the story.

And when people get hearting problems from the over loud theaters I certainly hope they sue the MPAA. Another thing that is out of control is the 20-30 minutes previews before a movie.

Free speech, first amendment rights, civil liberties. The decibels are so loud you can hear and feel the thump in the adjacent auditoriums!

This best not be happening. All movies in CT will sound like ‘Peabody’ in Auro!
