Times have really changed in the movie theater business. In my high school and college years, I earned a little money as a projectionist. The projectors were Simplex, all mechanical, and the film was illuminated by arclights and reflectors. Primitive stuff, to be sure, but I never ran more than five minutes of trailers. Occasionally, a Woody Woodpecker cartoon might be tossed into the pre-feature mix, but moviegoers in those days didn’t have to sit through the crap modern theaters dish out in such abundance before showtime. I ran my last movie in 1974. These days, I would rather watch Netflix in the comfort of my own home on more or less my terms.
