Desis living in the Bay Area have the misfortune of patronizing two of the dirtiest movie theaters in town.
Both these theaters are pathetic when it comes to cleanliness and quality.
It's a shame that these theaters charge the same money charged by the local movie theaters, that excel in cleanliness and technicals.
I had the misfortune of watching a wonderful movie 'Achamundu Achamundu' at IMC6 today, with audio from only one speaker. Yeah, a 2009 movie, technically supposed to be really good...with audio from the front speaker(s) only !!
When I went and complained to the manager around half-time, he told me that's how the movie is. After the show, I gave the manager a loud lecture about the pathetic audio ( which he accepted now !! ), only to be watched by fellow Tamil desis...none of whom even bothered to open their mouth.
Maybe the other desis in town are rich ..I don't know! Maybe they are absolutely clueless when it comes to sound quality...I don't know !
For me , spending 10$ a ticket in a lousy theater is unacceptable !
We are supposed to be Intelligent...aren't we?
