Worst audio if any production I have ever heard. You couldn't hear any of the dialogue in the whole movie. Was it this theatre only? Totally disappointing.

NYC live production was better. Why all the close ups? That is not what broadway is about? The cheesy audience shots clapping were unnecessary and removed story focus. I feel those that didn’t see it live were not given a true shot at loving it, and it should be loved!

Only sad about the sound. It was muffled and that was disappointing, otherwise it was great to see since it had closed just a week before I was in NYC this spring.

Loved the piece but cut the audience shots. I want to see the performers, not the audience. The volume in the theatre was too low. The lights should have come up during intermission. The theatre should clean the floors - shoes stick to them.

Good show filmed well but sound in theatre was way too low. Should have raised house lights at interval. But still very enjoyable.

FANTASTIC filming of this amazing musical! Red Rock Regal Cinemas in Las Vegas did a wonderful job bringing it to us! I WANT MORE SHOWINGS so I can see it again!!!

Disappointing start as Livonia AMC 20 in Michigan didn’t start projecting it until 20 minutes into simulcast. Audience members had to tell management it had not been started. Once started, the audio was minimal and could not be heard in theater. We had to yell to turn it up the volume. Great show but very disappointing execution at this theater!

I love this show. Heartwarming. Uplifting. I've seen it live and love that more, but this was still smile-inducing. Sound was soft in the theatre though :(

Saw the musical on Broadway. Enjoyed having a chance to see such an uplifting, feel good musical again as a movie. Also delighted in the opportunity seeing a London version too.

The musical is amazing, it's a great story with lots of inspirational messages. The music is excellent and gets you moving. The theater itself was not good, it was Garden State Theater Loews in Paramus NJ. The movie started 25 minutes late with no previews, then when it finally came on the sound was so low you could barely hear it for the first 15-20 minutes.

Since we didn't see it on Broadway, this was a great option. Loved having the close-ups that we couldn't have gotten in person.

Clever and fun but very repititious. Simple plot that dragged in 2nd act. Lola was great and saved an otherwise ordinary cast Great to see live theater on movie screens. Kudos to Fathom for doing these

The show was excellent. The actual theatre was another issue entirely. It was hot in the theatre, the sounds was awful until about 25 minutes in and the whole show was 20 minutes late getting started.

Loved the play. Seeing plays in a theater downtown have just become too expensive. Hope to see more Broadway shows thru Fathom.

The music! The lyrics! The CHOREOGRAPHY is phenomenal! The ENERGY of this performance is amazing! The cinematography of the performance is fantastic -- with close-ups and cameo shots, (almost) better than being in the Adelphi Theater in London.

Saw it on Broadway and it was fun to see how it was fine in this production. The actor playing Lola was as enjoyable as boy Porter. Fathom provides a wonderful vehicle for those who don't have access to Broadway musicals to enjoy!

It was a fabulous show despite the sound issues at the theatre we saw it at. First 5 minutes had no sound and the house lights were still on, but after they fixed that it was so good. My daughter loved it.

The show was absolutely wonderful. So a great message, music and so uplifting. The down side was the audio. The sound was too low and it really took a lot away from the show. I heard others complain of the same thing so I know it wasn't only me.

As everyone else has mentioned, sound was terrible. I wasn’t a fan of some of the singers, but the message was the best part. The movie was slow when I saw it, so tamping that up took some guts. I recommend it even with the flaws.

Saw this production on Broadway and loved it!! I got all the same feels while watch this London production. I did enjoy the closeups as that is missed when in a theater (especially with balcony seats). However, Showcase Cinemas in Millbury MA needs to upgrade their sound system in theater 4. I could hear the air conditioning more than the dialogue!! I listen to the soundtrack louder in my car! This music is fantastic and should not be ruined by faulty sound. This needs to be released on Netflix so I can enjoy it at home with surround sound!! 😀

The cast was amazing, like others said I have no idea if it was the theater that I watched it in but the volume was so low I was afraid to laugh because I might miss what was being said. also this is a musical and I want to feel immersed and what I'm watching and it's hard when speakers aren't working or the volume is down. 20 bucks to see this btw! I even informed two workers and nothing was done about it so I'm not sure if it was the recording or the theater.

I enjoy theater; I remember the commercials for this musical and I was always curious about the show. I was surprised by Lola but enjoyed the show nonetheless. And I wish I could have see it live.

allows the audience to be as close as possible to the actors. I have seen the live show twice and this film allowed me to see some of the suttle bits that are missed from the house. Most importantly Shoes!
