END OF AN ERA

The spots, scratches, crackles and pops of the cinema experience are a thing of the past with Horsham and Ararat cinemas calling time on traditional 35-millimetre film projection. Horsham Centre Cinemas and Ararat’s Astor Cinema have moved to digital technology, bringing an end to film projection with a big-screen finale in Horsham at the weekend. Horsham Centre Cinemas projectionist Brad Williams, above left, threads the final film shown in Horsham – box office hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – for guests at a function on the weekend. Mr Williams has worked in cinemas for 17 years, carrying 35-kilogram film reels between the three cinemas at the three-storey building. Movies will now be projected from small computer-style hard-drives. Picture: GREG O’CONNOR
