Tales from the (Movie) Theater: Projecting (Part 3)

I was taught on what is known as a Two Reel System — the older carbon arc variety. No splicing of film together to make it one large, easy to project unit. Nope…didn’t happen.

The third kept as cold backup for when one of others totally arrested on you, which could happen given the age of these antiques.
