Looking for a projectionist in NYC for photo essay/audio slideshow

I’m a photojournalist from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
I’m interested in doing a portrait of a cinema projectionist in New York City. This would be done in the form of an audio slideshow with photographs of him/her at work in the booth.
I’m looking for one who has been doing this for years, and is struggling to adapt with the changes and cuts in the movie theater business.
If you are one, and would like your story to be told, I would love to meet up with you!
Or if you know of someone, I’d appreciate it if you could put me in touch with him/her.
Thank you in advance!
I’m not from New York City, but central New Jersey. I currently work in a modern 10-plex, and I run festivals at a 1926 movie theatre the way it was done years ago. I started in the business as a teenager in 1976 following in my fathers footsteps. I have been an IATSE member for 31 years. I have also been trying to get a historic theatre outside of NYC restored for movies. They also have original equipment, including carbon arcs.
