Sound was too thin!

I love Mahler and this was my first time going to the cinema to hear a concert. I was thrilled to go to Mahler's 8th expecting to get wonderful sound, but unfortunately it was extremely thin and hollow. I can get better miles better sound out of my cheap home speakers. Maybe it was that cinema in particular, Regal Fiesta 16 at Vance Jackson, San Antonio, but I was very disappointed because of the poor sound, the very reason why I went to see it.

The theatre- Regal Theatre at Union Square NYC did not do justice to the magnificent sound of this concert. I wish the organizer made sure that they engaged venues that has better acoustic since the experience is less satisfying. It is a shame and a waste

Terrible Sound at Movei Theatre - Dudamel Mahler Encore

We sat at back of the theatre and the sound system was terrible. Flat. Volume was severely decreased. Don't think speakers were working in back or sides of the theatre. No other seats available or we would have moved. Never had this happen before. This is all about a hearing experience of Mahler's 8th Symphony and it was dismal.

Dudamel conducts Mahler

The concert was truly magnificent. I saw it live in Los Angeles and Caracas, and then in a movie theater in Washington, D.C. The broadcasting was great. Volume should have been higher, though. And then the audience was so old! Fandango should better promote the participation/attendance of younger people to these events.

Dudamel conducts Mahler Encore

Absolutely loved it. The first hour was excellent and added emensely to the understanding of the whole Mahler project with Venezuela and the enjoyment of the symphony itself (my first taste of Mahler) I especially enjoyed the close-ups of Dudamel and the individual musicians. The comaraderie between the musicians of the two countries was so is such a universal language and that was so apparent. I laughed and cried and loved watching the children both during the concert and during the discussion of the teaching of music in Venezuela. Hooray for them and LA for trying it out...would that we could have something like that for our children down here in Orange County. Thank you so much for making things like this available to the public as such a reasonable price. Jan
