I'm not making any claims of an unmodified concert hall being THX certified for movie playback. They're not asking me to accept tall tales completely on faith, you are.

Any proof of this certification? No passing the buck. If you're going to make a claim, then back it up yourself instead of telling me to take it up with THX.
