Yes, it’s a dying occupation, one to which I devoted much of my life. Film will not be around much longer and projection work will be done by floor staff that simply have to press buttons. I did notice you mixed 16mm JAN projectors (which most theatres do not use) with 35mm projectors. Good video for the untrained.

This video made me think back to my days of running a rep cinema in Toronto: lugging those heavy canisters of 35mm film up to the booth, making sure we had enough supplies at the candy counter, making sure we had enough staff for the evening, booking movies, making up the newspaper ads, etc. And if the projectionist didn’t show up… guess who ran the projectors? I still miss it all, but without a real projection booth, it’s just not the same business anymore. But I must confess that now I’m simply a regular moviegoer, I really prefer watching a digital presentation. There are no dusty, scratched, misframed or out of focus images or even missing frames to mar one’s enjoyment. But on the other hand, I don’t think I’d enjoy running a cinema again. Selling candy and popcorn doesn’t excite me and projecting a movie in a cinema isn’t anymore exciting or challenging than plunking a Blu-ray disc into a player.
