Having my redundancy approved feels like being on a lifeboat floating away from the Titanic. I’m sad to see the glorious thing go down but I’m so glad I’m getting the fuck out of here.. Oh yes, getting rid of my uniform tomorrow! The trousers had a hole in the left knee and the lining was ripping, my shoes were worn out as well. They would have offered me Team Member position with a pay cut. Cuz on my interview I said I don’t like digital. Lol yea ok kthnxbai! #odeon #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems

Sweetheart just sent me this picture heheh. I’ve been away from all the cinema life forever. This is so cool. As far as I can see it’s the wooden roll that had some cables around it, two port glasses (heavy!), two spools and a 35mm trailer of something. D’awww! And I just sent in my voluntary redundancy request today. 35mm cinema was the best! #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems #35mm #film
Greedy odeon fuckers! Ripped out a few rows of the comfy AMC seats and stuck their torturous Premier Seats there instead! Fuck’s sake! Extra money for a seat that’s shittier than the cheaper ones?! Hmm.. In the big screens my usual row stayed unharmed but in the upstairs screens they’re right in the middle. Odeon, you bastards! #odeon #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems
Gonna watch Skyfall in out new EYE-POPPING, EAR-TINGLING AND SOMETHING ELSE TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE iSense screen. Yea iSense. Like a poor man’s IMAX. And cuz it’s super hip to put an “i” if front of a trademark concept. Ffffffffff….. Speakers in the walls, ceiling and behind the screen. Apparently the best thing to ever happen to cinema..
I am really not bothered and I can’t wait to get home.
The last bit of fun I had with 35mm. I built up my last film Taken 2 and just couldn’t resist inserting a frame from Brüno in the middle of it. Yes, that would be a frame of a cock. And for two weeks hundreds of people (Taken 2 was incredibly popular!) saw a cock on the big screen for 1/24 of a second and never even realised. I had to do it for my grand kids! One day I will be showing them Fight Club and saying that’s what I used to do. (Even if I pussied out and only put 1 frame and not more into the film). 35mm is dead! Long live the 35mm! #cinema #film #35mm #projection #projectionistproblems
Just look at these beautiful babies! The last ones we have here! 2x Taken 2. Will be tearing them down and then the 35mm is gone from this building! 😪 #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems #35mm #film (at AMC Cinemas)
