Went to try this app the other day before recommending it to my mom and it worked great! Watched Solo and it synced perfectly, never buffered or stopped. I was worried that I wouldn’t hear over the loud movie sound but I did- in fact I couldn’t hear the English version in background and there’s no need to, as the audio track contains everything, not just dialogue. I was worried other ppl would be able to hear the sound from my earphones, but that didn’t happen either. I took off my earphones a couple of times at different volumes to check and nothing. I was also pleased to hear LA Spanish as opposed to the Spain accent I had heard previously in a video advertising this app (nothing wrong with it, my accent just happens to be LA) anyway. I’m looking forward to more movie and language options! As a polyglot, I’d definitely appreciate the fun option to hear my favorite movies in different languages! Great job so far :) Actually one question: why do we need to “download the track” every time? Can’t we just do it once and then unlock it by choosing the movie showtime or something? I kept changing plans and while at home it downloaded in seconds, when I did it at the theater before the movie it took around 10mins. Not a deal breaker because I was early just something that could be better.

Great for those non English Speakers: Amazing !!!
I went to the movies to watch Jurassic World, I was really nervous about it, wasn’t really sure if it was going to work. It took me 2 tries to make it work at the begging of the movie, i also believe that you need and internet connection in order to play the audio in the movies, which it was probably why did not worked on my mom’s phone. I also believe it was because the beginning has not dialog and maybe had some troubles recognizing the audio. I also used Bose Quit Comfort 35 to cancel as much noise as posible, it worked great because the audio from TheaterEars also includes sound effects and voices. This is truly great. My mom is really happy that I found this app, now she can go to the movies with me and understand everything about it! Thank you!

Best thing ever!! Can’t believe this app is available and the theaters don’t tell you. I called several theaters to ask for Spanish accommodations and all told me they didn’t have any for Jurassic World. We found this app and we took our cousin who was visiting from Mexico to the movies and she was able to enjoy the movie with us! We watched Jurassic World and it synced perfectly with the movie. We were worried that the audio would be off but it synchronizes with the audio once you’re in the theater and the movie begins. Tip* Make sure to download the audio when you have good Data Service or in WiFi. You can download the audio one day before (at least that’s what I did). Recommend it for everyone who has family or friends that only understand spanish.

A Life Changer !!
I have a son with Cerebral Palsy who is Spanish Speaker only, we moved a few years back to the US but he does not understand english and always missed out on going to the movies here because he cant understand nor he can read subtitles. He really wanted to see Fast & Furious 9 and asked me if there was a way he could see it in Spanish on a movie theater, so it got me researching until I found this wonderful application. I really didn't know if it was going to work until we went to see the movie and he was so excited he was Jumping on the theater chair!! I cannot stress enough how this will change his life!! Now we can see all the movies he wants to see in the Theater!! Whoever made this app is a Genius!!! Thanks So Much!!!

This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for a long time! My mother was never able to fully enjoy watching a movie with us at the theater unless it was already in Spanish, since she can’t read or write at all. But now with this app she can come along with us to watch movies and understand everything being said! The only thing I see that would make it better would be if every film in the theater would be available to be translated or how there could possibly be an add on of languages. But I understand how it might be difficult to get that done so I appreciate at least being able to understand the few (great selections by the way) that are already there. I am super grateful to everyone who helped create this app!

Great quality but needs a lot more options
This is the first review I’ve ever made because I hope the app owners start adding more options. The app works great, and if there is a movie you really want to see actually listed, it’s amazing. But my husband uses this app because he doesn’t speak English and going to the movies is a perfect date night option we haven’t been able to really experience. We have seen one movie with the app and everything worked great. It was the first time my husband had ever been to a movie theater. But we want to go back and the movies we want to see aren’t options and they don’t look like they are coming anytime soon. So please, add Toy Story and Lion King to the app so we can enjoy. I have told all my friends about the app and everyone I know that doesn’t speak English. The app could really take off if they invest a little more.

Add more movies please
I’ll always appreciate this app for what it’s done to help Hispanics to enjoy the movies in the US. But I always feel like they don’t add enough movies to their catalogue. There have been many times where I’ve wanted to watch a movie with my dad but it wasn’t available in the app. You shouldn’t focus just on blockbusters but also on the other movies that they release at the time. For example I wanted to watch the Holdovers, Ferrari, and American Fiction with my dad. But none of those were available on the app. Obviously blockbusters like Oppenheimer were available. But that’s my point. So please, expand the movies available to download the Spanish audio.

Worked fantastically!!!
I saw the app advertised before the previews. Downloaded it and was able to download the movie track in just a few minutes. Ready before the movie started. I am hearing impaired and use hearing aids. I used the English-Hearing Impaired version and was able to adjust the volume enough to be able to hear the dialogue and music. So glad that I got this app!!! I usually can’t understand the movie in the theater and have to wait for it to come out on tv to be able to use captions. I’m hoping I can find other theaters that use this as well!!!! 10 stars!!!! :)

Worked perfectly for The Batman
I took my Spanish-speaking mother to see The Batman and the app worked pretty much perfectly to my surprise! The translation track synced easily (even mid-movie) and was clear with no issues. I downloaded the audio track on data multiple times, no problem. I recommend you have a full charge, turn off auto lock on your phone to prevent the app from closing and lower the brightness all the way down to preserve the battery. She had a great time thanks to this app.

I pay for this service. I do the owe you answers for a survey
Just like the title says, I pay for this. I don’t owe you guys answers for a survey before you download the information I pay you for. You refuse to download the track until I answer questions for you. Sounds silly to get upset over but what if they did that at a fast food place? Make you answer a survey before handing you food you paid hard earned money for after forcing you to let the application track your location. Where does it end? You want me to pull my pants down so you can smell what I had for lunch yesterday? Stop forcing information from people and do your job. I’m petty enough I will stop going to the theater in general just so I don’t have to answer your questions. Thanks for nothing.

Wish it would work…
Why bother introducing a subscription service when the main service doesn’t actually work? Every time I try to use the app I either get a message saying that there was an error while trying to sign in or when I go to download a track it simply hangs, buffers as if doing something, before giving me an error message without actually downloading anything. I see a lot of great reviews, and I would love nothing more than to have the same experience so I can get to give the stars that this app should get, particularly because it helps enable me to spend time at the movies with my grandparents who don’t speak English and that is a truly great reward. When it works, of course.

Amazing Finally we can all go to watch movies
I took my parents to watch a movie today! Something That I couldn’t do before. Unless it was a Spanish speaking movie. They were finally able to hear the movie in Spanish using the App and earphones while the movie was still playing in English on the screen. The Spanish translation was perfect, the sounds effect exactly the same as the movie. My parents loved it. And they are already making plans to go to the movie theater next weekend, and bring more family with them. Thank you soooo much !!!!

Amazing and cheap!!!
I still haven’t payed for the subscription, bus is just $2 and it gives u a whole month for free. I used it yesterday, as soon as the movie started I made sure to sync the movie with the audio and omg it was wonderful! My mom was able to enjoy the movie with us. I love this app! Is so easy to use too! I like downloading the audio a day before going to the theater just in case I don’t have signal in the theater, and it allows me to do so! Get the app! U won’t regret it!

Is there a way Avengers: Endgame can be available sooner?
I purchased/reserved tickets to watch it on Tuesday, April 30th with my mom and sisters only to barely find out the translation on the app comes out on May 3rd. The tickets I purchased are non refundable so it’ll be really difficult for my mother to enjoy the movie without watching it in her native language and that makes me feel bad. I would give this 5 stars had I been notified sooner about this as I didn’t know it would take longer to go see. It works great but the situation I’m in is difficult. It’d be appreciated if you guys could push the date closer, my mom’s really excited to watch it but she won’t understand a thing if it’s not in Spanish :(

So far so good
Reminder this app is for Spanish voice overs. I recently used it for Doctor Strange 2 in Cinemark in the Bay Area and it worked wonderfully. I had three family members used it and I tried it for a couple of minutes. The audio was pretty much in sync which is difficult to determine since English and Spanish are not the same thing. Overall my family loved it and didn’t have problems with the free version. Use both earbuds if possible.

Works great, would love more options
I tried this with the Spanish translation back on Coco and it’s great! I really wish they would expand to provide captioning for hard of hearing and deaf people. You could force the screen to be dim to bother people less, but any way you do it would be better than those caption devices they have in theaters! They miss lines, run out of batteries, and can accidentally show captions of the wrong movie. My sister hates going to movies and this would make a huge difference for her.

So useful!
I've always loved going to the movies and my mom loves going wherever I go lol. However I've had difficulties because I have to explain the movie to her since they're in English. Now I come across this app and we tried it for the first time with Ocean's 8 and she loved it. She was so excited. The only thing is we didn't calculate how long it would take to download, we thought we'd be safe since there was trailer but it take more than 20 min. Just be aware. Overall, great app just please add more!

I have questions
I haven’t tried this in a theater yet but I have tested it at home. I didn’t know what to expect but It was okay. The movie and audio did sync. I have parents that only speak Spanish and want to take them to the movies. Im uneasy since the time schedule on this app are mostly unmatched to the time schedule of when the movie actually starts. Like let’s say I want to watch the Batman at 1:30pm, this app would give the option at 2:30pm and nothing for 1:30 pm. I read that the audio downloaded only works at that scheduled time that it was downloaded for. Is that true?

Great inclusive app
Grandma and grandpa were visiting from out of the country for the holidays and the grandkids wanted to go to the movies. We found this app and it was the best!! Super easy to use, we downloaded it on 2 phones, selected a movie theater and a movie available on the app, got them each a pair of headphones, headed to the movies..(set phone to Do not disturb) and grandparents were able to hear the movie in Spanish and spent time with the family.

Got my hopes up…
Tried it for the first time with my parents who are Spanish speakers. We watched Top Gun and I couldn’t rave enough about how amazing this app was. Recommended it to all my family members because I was in disbelief with how amazing it had worked. Fast forward to today when I tried to download the audio for Elvis to take my dad to watch, and the app wouldn’t let me login. Tried different methods to access the app (forgot password, different login methods, resetting the app, deleting and redownloading…etc) nothing worked. I’m grateful I didn’t give one single cent to this app because I would’ve been infuriated. Don’t download it…it’ll only get your hopes up.

Works fantastic! I don’t speak any Spanish but my mother in law is visiting from Colombia and she doesn’t speak any English. I was having a hard time finding things to do together when my husband is at work. Then I found theatre ears. We went to the drive in movie theatre and it synced perfectly; She laughed when I laughed. And “awwed” when I did. So I knew we were hearing the same things. Thank you theatre ears. This is something that should be standard everywhere!

Good but Unreliable
I’ve used this app a couple of times before with a couple of issues that were inconvenient but manageable. But recently I have tried to use it multiple times and the track will download very slowly and once it is done I get a message saying there was an ‘error’ after multiple times of trying I was not able to play a movie track until halfway through the film I was watching. Once it was working it was good but it was not worth the trouble

Great app
I love this app, I can finally watch movies with my parents, this app is super user friendly and great quality. My only concern is that some movies aren’t on the app, I wrote an email and they wrote back to me saying that they get the movies straight from the company that releases them, and some movies don’t come with a Spanish version. I can’t take off stars for something they have no control over, but other than that the app is awesome... and FREE. Thank you TheaterEars

Outstanding idea
I loved this idea ever since I heard about it. The I tried it and now I loved it. My wife is happy because she can now understand an entire movie. I understand you guys need to monetize the app eventually, I hope you don’t charge per movies, because the problem is that they are really expensive already. I’d prefer to watch a ad or something different instead of paying more for the audio of the movie. Thank you.

One of our family members speaks Spanish but we all wanted to see a movie together. This allowed us all to see the same movie in theaters! Just need headphones. I even got a call during the middle so it cut it off but the app uses your microphone to sync back up and it did with no problems. Also you can turn the screen off during the movie so your phone isn’t shining. It’s a great app we were so amazed.

Great App! Could offer more...
It’s been YEARS since my film-loving parents have been to the movies and both understood as well as enjoyed being there. Therefore the happiness and enthusiasm TheaterEars has brought to my parents and, consequently, myself, is priceless! The app in itself is easy to maneuver and translations, for the most part, synch on time. My biggest criticism however, is that is that the app doesn’t offer an array of options, especially those outside the blockbuster realm. I’d love to see a ‘Knives Out’ or a ‘Jojo Rabbit’ on here. I know they would too.

Awesome experience for Spanish mom
My mother only speaks Spanish it is so entertaining to be able to take her to the movies. It makes her life much happier to be able to join us on a different type of outing. Thank you for having this available. She is 76 and unable to learn English fully so it it's a gift to her in the USA every time she can enjoy the movies. Whoever worked on this deserves major kudos as it also works flawlessly.

Abuela loves it!
We watched Coco and had Abuela listen in Spanish, she loved being able to understand all the jokes and intricacies of the movie with the rest of the audience. It was pretty easy for me to set up, and there’s a tutorial to watch if you need help! Just make sure you start the Synching process when all the trailers and theatre ads are done. I started mine, for Coco, right when I saw the Disney Castle and it synced in about 10 seconds.

Works! But still needs improvements.
The app actually worked! My mother was happy to hear in Spanish on her phone. Though, the only problem is that I couldn’t work it for my father’s phone since the app wouldn’t let me sync the showtime after a certain time. I’m assuming it’ll work if you sync it 0-5 minutes when the movie schedule starts. So 7:15pm was the scheduled movie time and after 7:20pm it wouldn’t let me sync no more with a different device.

Location not found
Though the app does work. My friend was shocked to have heard Spanish speaking and sound. The only problem was that every 5 to 8 minutes it would say “location not found, you are .4 miles away from theater.” Than it reloads again. I thought it was the free app so I purchased the app turns out the same thing still happens. Maybe they just need to update this app. It’s really works and my friend can watch movies with me.

Great app
The app is great just a few things that keep me from giving it a 5 star. First the movie selection is only about a 1/4 of the movies that are showing and second that it glitches out of the movie your watching sometimes and it takes a while to re-sync. Other than that great app, great sound quality and yes it syncs perfectly with the audio playing from the big screen.

My mother-in-law is visiting from Brazil and doesn't speak English.. We took her to the movies a couple of times and she had a hard time.. Just imagining the storyline.. Although she doesn't speak Spanish.. It's much closer to the Portuguese.. When I discovered TheaterEars and took her to the movies to watch with the Spanish track, she was so emotive that she even cried after the movie ended.

Honestly I haven’t been able to try this application because there is no listings of the movies me and my family actually want to go see. I have emailed them before about the low variation of movies provided and that was well over a year ago and they said they are working on adding more movies and I haven’t seen any updates or more variations. I find this app useless to be truthfully honest. It’s much more easier translating the movie to my husband and father then actually waiting to see if and when they might add the movie.

We used to love this app as it allowed my fiancé and I to see most any movie in the theater that we were interested in. Unfortunately, it is currently not showing any theaters or movies available and there are many. We received one reply to our email a week or so ago and they fixed it partially fir one day but since that time, no responses to multiple inquiries through the app. We would be willing to pay for use as it has been that enjoyable for us in the past.
