    My observation of center channel usage at a United Artist theater.

    Last night my wife and I saw Ghost of Mars. It was decent but, not as good as I had hoped. Though it did have it moments.

    Anyhow, while watching the film, I was intrigued at how quite the center (dialog) was. At first it seemed too soft but, after five minutes I realized it was perfect. The surround effect were just as they should be as well.

    I recently saw Planet of the Apes and thought the same thing of it's sound.

    Most home systems that I have heard are just the opposite. Just an observation.

    It's been awhile since I've been to the cinema, but I was never very impressed with their sound systems . I'm going to take in a movie this weekend so I'll be paying a lot of attention to the sound.

      I too have not been to the theater as much since getting into HT. I usually go about four or five times a year. We only went this time because my wife just wanted to get out of the house.

      BTW, I stopped going all together for awhile. Then went to see the Mummy a couple yrs back. I was impressed with the sound and theater. So I began going more often.

      That's when I noticed that the "better" theaters were taking more pride in the presentation. Or so it seemed.

      The dialog for that movie was as smooth as the recent ones I mentioned above.
