We use a WESTREX 35 mm film projector with a SIMPLEX SOUND HEAD pickup.
Every movie comes in reels of film that must be spliced together into one long film.
It goes from a Christie platter table system through the projector and back to the platter table.
When we finish showing a film, we must separate the film - it goes off the platter table back onto individual reels.
Then it gets shipped back to the production company that owns it.
Will cost approx.$50,000 to $70,000. to upgrade to digital. We are required to switch by 2013.
