Movie Theater Tour

Hunter's Cub Scout group toured our movie theater. We were shown how they thread the film.
It goes into this thing below called a "brain." It plays and rewinds the movie at the same time.

It is threaded through the brain and then over to the projector. The light bulb they use is a 2000 watt bulb. After turning the projector off you can't open it up for 15-20 minutes or it will bust and sound like a shot gun.

The film plays from one of the platter and reloads on another.

This was a very interesting tour to go on.
