Mr Monkey tours the Stockport Plaza Cinema, 12th September

"I wouldn't like to have to thread film through all that"

Beside the Kalee projector Mr Monkey found a pair of restored 1948 Westar projectors on Western Electric 2002 Sound Heads. These are used for showing full length films with modern sound tracks. Mr Monkey was able to peek inside one of them, and found that it all looked rather intricate. Between the two projectors Mr Monkey found a little button used to switch from one projector to the other when the first one's reel of film is coming to an end.
