Projectionists are responsible for receiving films, and for inspecting them for any technical problems. If they discover any faults, they may have to make the necessary repairs, working to deadlines. They provide the required film projection service, and ensure that all advertisements, trailers and films are projected on time.
Projectionists carry out any necessary administration, including the maintenance of film records. They may also be responsible for all aspects of the cinema's technical operations outside of the projection room, including lighting, heating, ventilation, fire alarms and equipment, electrical, water and gas supplies.
They must comply with the relevant Health and Safety legislation and requirements. They must also be aware of all statutory and local authority measures related to the projection suite, and ensure that they are adhered to. In larger establishments, Projectionists may report to a Chief or Senior Projectionist. (Read more here)
