Too loud

To the Editor:

Our health and welfare is not only food products, but our environment as well. Recently, I went to see “2016” at the Regal movie theater in Crystal Lake. The movie was OK, but the audio was deafening. The sound was so loud it gave me a headache. What does it do to your hearing? We asked twice if they could turn it down to no avail.

Later, I called the health department. A woman there said there is no ordinance against it. They can do nothing about it. She said she would talk to her supervisor.

In the machine industry, OSHA would shut you down. Why do they allow it at the movies? Our young people will be deaf before the time they’re 40. Maybe the movie industry is in cahoots with the hearing aid industry?

If you agree with me, call Jack Franks, our state representative, and let him know how you feel about this. Also call the health department. You go to the movies to enjoy yourself, not punish your-self.
