I've never seen a movie there myself, but I remember a couple other posters on this forum mentioning that they had significant problems with the sound there. Specifically, I remember mfunk talking about how he couldn't understand much of Inherent Vice's dialogue at its premiere and hearthesilence mentioning that they had (or may have had, they/I wasn't certain) similar trouble with The Other Side Of The Wind.

Dropping $75 a ticket for a gala screening of Inherent Vice there was sort of like ordering the porterhouse at Olive Garden.

If you're hard of hearing or even just concerned about being able to hear the film, they're almost certain to have accessibility devices for hard of hearing patrons if you call ahead and ask. Not sure if the fact that they're festival premiers might impact that or not. Also might just depend on where you're sitting in the theater, only been there once.
