I find the same issue, our local Cinema is very very old, owned by a large Movie Cinema chain that refuses to spend any money on the behind the scenes equipment, they announced a recent refurb of the cinema which was mainly paint, carpet and some new seats but when asked about equipment upgrades they said it was restricted to converting to a couple more cinemas to digital projection but nothing else.
Its nearly a decade behind the times now but they refuse to upgrade the equipment that needs it the most.
So they dont get a cent from me, the sound from my system at home is far superior, patiularly bass response.
And a number of Cinemas in Australia wonder why patronage is falling, maybe concentrate less on a flashy paint job and expensive carpet and put some more money towards the reason people go to the Cinema, Picture and Sound.
