Thanks for taking notice
To Bill Donovan:
Thank you very much for your kind words for HospiceCare in The Berkshires in your recent article.
In your own words, in this cynical, high-speed, big-dollar world, it’s always a heartwarming surprise to find good people who acknowledge good things done - thank you again. We appreciate your public trust and confidence.

Berkshire Healthcare Systems, Inc. The Decline
of Images Theater
To the editor:
On Saturday, Nov. 24, my wife and I saw a film at Images. Not having been there for a few months, we were horrified at its decline, as evidenced by several factors.
The volume level was far too soft, and it soon became apparent why this was so. During the louder sections, there was severe distortion and breakup in both front speakers. If the volume were turned up any more, the distortion would have been unbearable. The side speakers, which were mostly silent, occasionally erupted in distortion in the louder storm scenes. In all, this was by far the worst sound system I have heard in recent years in any theater bar none. As a touring media artist who uses sound systems in my work, I have some experience in this area.
The visual image was faded in previews as well as the main feature. Images clearly needs to change the projector bulb.
The one at Images was out of order. We were directed to the ones outside the lobby next to the bar. My wife found a man in the ladies’ room and was very upset. We were both also mildly accosted by a drunk standing near the restrooms.
We are trying to reason why the management at Images would let the experience decline so dramatically. We are also trying to reason why we should ever go to another film there.
Who needs this aggravation? In our 40 years of living in this area, Images has been a bright spot in our cultural experiences.
It is so sad to see this kind of neglect.
