AFI SILVER THEATRE AND CULTURAL CENTER Silver Spring, Maryland
The rewind/inspection station in the Historic Theatre. The AFI/Silver runs a lot of film…as one can tell by the number of reel bins (and there are many, many more). They can fill them up pretty easily. Non-archival films are Film-Guarded (note the cleaner on the rewinder). The table was modified by the projectionists to make where the cleaner mounts more robust and easier to install/remove. They also have PTR rollers for archival or delicate movies.
