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!

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!

Sound was so faint that you could not hear the actors speaking. Musical numbers were louder.

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.

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.

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 :(

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

I thought the American Broadway version was better. English accents hard to understand.

Even better than the National Touring Company we saw at DPAC. Olivier Award winner Matt Henry as Lola gives an epic performance. Best line of the show: Oscar Wilde quote "Be Yourself...Everyone Else is Already Taken"

I liked the stage-show feel. Some closeups but not constantly so you saw the staging. Love the music!

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!

Glad to finally see this play. Missed it in NYC due to schedule and cost. While a film version isn't as good as seeing a play live it sure was a great price! Thanks! No sound issues in Regal NRV.

London cast was great. Audio and videography were balanced and produced well. Great opportunity for my family to see shows they wouldn’t be able to travel to NYC or London to enjoy.

Great show. Had to go tell someone in the lobby of the AMC Tustin District that the sound was way too low. Why do I need to tell the theater that the volume was way off?

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.

Great way to see this production for the first time. Now I want to see the live production! My only complaint is the audio was low & the chatty old ladies next to me were loud.

It was good especially the ending but I felt more connected to the play. The performance from Lola was very moving. A bunch of kids interfered with the movie at times so many in the audience were miffed.

Play/Movie was great, theater sucked. No sound when the film started, volume was low thought and even got worse halfway through. Multiple complaints but no action or response from staff.

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.
