The Projection Booth (2016)


Lansdowne Theater — Lansdowne, Pennsylvania

The first flexible film used in motion pictures had a plasticized base made from nitrocellulose (also known as guncotton) which was illuminated by the spark produced between two carbon rods. The arc produced high amounts of heat and sparks which could easily ignite the flammable film stock – hence, quite a few movie theaters were lost to fire before the advent of polyester film stock and Xenon bulbs.
