Episode 21 - Projection with Genevieve Havemeyer-King
March 21st 2023

Projectionist Genevieve Havemeyer-King joins us to talk about recent articles on theatrical film exhibition in The New York Times, Vulture, and n+1. Along with co-host John Klacsmann of Anthology Film Archives, we get into how pre-digital trends toward multiplex automation, corporate union busting, and studios stacking the deck in their favor with the DCP specification have shaped the current state of theatrical film presentation. We also talk about 35mm projection, 70mm blow-ups, the projectionist as showman vs. mechanic, and how the repertory experience is changing.

A full-length bonus episode about Regal Union Square, Peter Kubelka's Invisible Cinema, ChatGPT, and New York slasher movies is coming soon for our Patreon subscribers.

Hosts: Jon Dieringer & John Klacsmann; Editor: John Klacsmann; Producer: Marielle Ingram
