In this video I show you an old projection booth and the scars left from the early days of cinema projection.  I cover nitrate film (As in what is used to make Nitroglycerin, same stuff), how it was combustible and some of the fire safety procedures. I also talk about how a projectionist use to be a uni degree and what this entailed.
