Thanks for the information. Had heard of Cinerama but didn’t understand the format.

I worked as a projectionist for more than a handful of years with 35mm on Simplex projector gear boxes, platter systems and a mix match of lamp systems. Audio was optical track on the print and run through mono and stereo equipment. Eventually we had a single screen with Digital Theater Systems (DTS) audio. The audio was on a CD-ROM and synced to the print through an optical time code on the print.

Fun times. I learned about older systems from the head projectionist. Arc rod lamp houses, reel change marks and many other things.

Digital has killed the mechanical wonder of film projection.

I've always wanted to see Grand Prix in Cinerama.

I saw “Patton” in Cinerama as a kid with my parents with all the cursing 😀
