Movie Theater Noise Levels Harmful To Your Hearing

Sep 16, 2010 by

In an article, the director of public education for the Center for Hearing and Communication said that they have received complaints about movie theater noise levels. The sounds from watching a movie inside a movie theater can indeed be harmful to your hearing. The decibel levels are different at every movie theater, but the loud special effects of some action films can be as dangerous to your hearing as the noise at a loud rock concert. According to the Center for Hearing and Communication, this can possibly contribute to hearing loss.

Though movie theaters may not be cooperative in keeping sound levels to safe levels, there are still things you can do to help prevent hearing loss. Protecting yourself from hearing loss is very important. You should avoid long periods of exposure to loud noises, even it’s from a MP3 player or a loud concert, it can potentially cause damage to your hearing.
