Noise Pollution

October 17, 2002

Thanks for finally tackling the question of noise, even if it's New York's noise (Oct. 13). Perhaps now someone will build a defense against the deafening decibel level of our movie theater soundtracks. When I took my 4-year-old grandson to his first film, as soon as the sound came on, he ran out of the theater crying and holding his ears. I know how he felt; many of us now take ear plugs to the movies. If it's true that most movies are made to target the teen audience, then why is the soundtrack geared for the hard of hearing? Or are our teens already losing theirs?
