The very first job I applied for as a 14year old was ‘Cinema Projector Operator’ at the local megaplex.
Needless to say, I wasn’t hired. Although a few years later they took me on making popcorn and ripping tickets and within a year I’d talked my way into the projection booth.
I’ve been threading film for 10years, and tonight I played my last. Being a projectionist is the only thing I’ve stuck to for this long in my life and the idea of not lacing up again didn’t enter my mind until half an hour before the last show.
I’m not done with cinema’s completely. But tonight was it for 35mm. We’ve had some good memories. I’ll miss it.
