Not really about "the last projectionist" at all
5 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

What a shame. This film isn't what it says it is. Whilst it is made with the best intentions and carries a strong passion for preserving independent cinema in the UK it skims over the history of projection and focuses (near-advertises) it's attention on the history of supposedly the oldest working cinema in the UK. The interviews are mostly informal group pint chats with ex- employees. Feels like a missed opportunity and a slight mis-steer in marketing. The irony is this tries to delve into the history of 35mm projection, but only gets to that at the end with a brief look at a working projector, yet is made in "glorious HD". Still, it's nice someone has gone to the effort of broaching the subject!
