My uncle was the projectionist at the Globe theater in the 50’s and 60’s. He also managed the building. I would visit in the summer and would go with him to work and spend the day watching the new films over and over. I would watch him change reels and light the carbon arc projectors. He once took me with him through the inner workings of the theater. I saw the wall of dressing rooms which went up what seemed like five stories with a moving staircase to access them.
There were giant fans which were part of the air conditioning system and the back stage are with all the rigging and scenery.
It was an amazing experience for a 10 year old boy
