THE BOOTH

My dream job as a child was to work in the booth of a movie theater.  When I went to the movies I would look for the cutout in the wall where the movie was playing.  I wanted to be the guy up there whose responsibility it was to play the film for the audience down below.  Theses days theater booths rarely house an actual film reel, but consist of a computer screen and a small projector that plays the movie digitally.  Obviously this is a huge cost saver for the movie studios who rarely now send an actual print. Smaller theaters that can’t afford these digital machines are either doing fundraisers to purchase one or closing all together.

Photographer Joseph Holmes who is also fascinated by the theater booth, took his camera into some of the remaining projection booths out there.
