The Complete Projectionist


Hello and welcome to my website. This site has been in existence in one form or another since 1997 and originally aimed to look at the world of the Projectionist, the Projector and the cinema industry as a whole. Over the years it has grown and expanded but its aim is to provide information about this part of the entertainment industry.


Today as technology and cinema has changed there is additional information on other areas of projection, whether it is in a non-traditional local venue, projection mapping, 360 degree or any other environment where a projected image is used to tell a story.


The site continues to aim to look at everything from the earliest cinema technology through to whatever the future has to hold, and everything in between. By far the largest part of this site is now as a news resource providing curated information on the technical and business side of cinema, but also with longer ‘blog’ articles – if you want to see what the latest article I have written is, then head over to the blog contents page.

For a long introduction to the website, then read the introduction section.

Join the Projected Picture Trust

You may not know, but I am actually the chairman of the Projected Picture Trust, and I urge all projectionists and people who love traditional projectors and engineering to become members.

To all those who have, or had, some interest in projected moving images, past and present.

Perhaps you’re already connected with today’s cinema, technical or otherwise, but have an interest in vinage equipment, or you have been retired from the business so long, you would wish to revist “the good old days”.

Take hear and consider joining The Projected Picture Trust and help preserve the magic of cinema. Apart from equipment restoration, the Trust provides help and assitance to non-commercial community cinemas and museums exhibiting film related artefacts.

The Museum of Cinema Technology has perhaps, the largest colleciton of all types of film equipment in the UK. The Data Archive within the musuem holds over 3000 items including technical manuals, film related documents, press cuttings etc. Membership of the PPT will give you access to these amenities as well as the collections with the Trust’s regions.

You can join us today by signing up online via Paypal.
