Seeking Stories from Projectionists
I am doing research on the projectionist during the golden age of cinema from the thirties through to the seventies.
Experiences in the booth, funny moments, tragic moments, moments when the projectionist was the hero. I am also looking for info on booth setups and stories about the love projectionists had for their machines.
In our modern day of loud, in your face films, the craftmanship of the projectionist is all but gone. Many of our fellow projectionists are getting up in years and their memories of the art of the changeover booth projectionist deserved to be remembered.
With your help and my ambition I hope to compile these memories into a book dedicated to the projectionist of yesteryear.
