Oppressed by movie trailers

Re “Movies: Unhooking the trailer” (Editorial, June 13): Folks come to a movie theater to see the film they are paying to see. We have counted at least 25 minutes of invasive, clangy, violent, and extremely LOUD trailers before the film starts.

These trailers usually hit us with violence or near nudity, and their volume is so high that we cover our ears. We wonder at those who would want to see yet another film showing a city being bombed or a lizard coming out of somebody’s stomach. When the film finally starts, the sound is so low the audience can barely hear it.

This practice is an insult to those who pay dearly. And if, as your editorial says, some people just love previews, then let them stay until the end of the featured movie, and watch the things afterward.
