Why when a projector is miss threaded can a film successfull run the entire lenght balancing half on a roller and half off a roller when if you tried to run a show in this manner on purpose the film would simply fall off!
Why when a show is running to 3 people does it runs perfectly , but when the show is running to 200 people the film has a head wrap!
Why when a power failure happens , all the touches on hand have flat batteries!
Why when shifting prints around does the center fall out of the print that is due to be screened in the next 10 minutes.
Why is that when a a couple travel 100 miles from the next town to see a show the cinema program ad in the paper is showing the wrong times.
Why does the cinema run like clockwork all week and on my day off , everything decides to fail.
Why do platters throw prints on a blockbuster premier night , but do not on a ordinary screening.
Why does the projectionist splice the trailers on upside down to the movies that the cinema owners have come in to see?
Why does the airconditioning only fail during a peak period with record high temperatures !
Why is it when a film is two days late arriving at the cinema do we get a group booking for 200 for the opening night !
why is it when we start screening the wrong film in the wrong cinema do we have a distributor rep in that cinema!
Why is it when the popcorn machine is empty everone wants 2 large popcorns , but when the machine is full nobody buys any and it is throw away and the end of the night.
