If you were on I-495 near Chunkys you might have been picking up the
cinema's assistive listening device. A now defunct manufacturer, Smart
Devices, made a low rent (cheesy) assistive listening system for the hard of
hearing that used a small, frequency agile, FM transmitter. Patrons wishing
to use the system were given a REAL cheap Walkman to use with it. The
system was essentially a Mr. Microphone with a line input.
