I worked there occasionally as relief projectionist in the evenings in the early 90’s.
The 1960’s Westars had very slow changeover shutters :they sometimes did a “wipe” across….
once, when i did a show for the birthday of film critic Phillip Berenson and friends we showed a fellini film that started off silent… then sound came through the projection box monitor…so all was fine….after a few minutes birthday boy arrived huffing at the projection door…quite high up…saying he knew the front was silent…but there was no sound at all….I stopped the show after going into the auditorium…and found that the speaker had been disconnected and wheeled away on the theatre stage…
