The combination of numbers 8 I 16 I 35 makes the heart of every cinema fan beat to unattainable heights. We hear the rattling of the projectors in the movie theatre and perhaps remember the one or other film break. Most of the time it only took a few minutes to get back to continue, because the projectionists had to glue the film in a flash.
And what a logistical effort it was to send the film prints around the world. This was accompanied by anxiety that the right title was in the box, that the print didn‘t get stuck in customs or sometimes simply disappeared, but hopefully arrived intact in Hof.
The analog cinema world requires the utmost concentration and technical skill from everyone involved. A fascinating world that is steadily disappearing. Let‘s take a bow to the art of projection and cinema with our 8 I 16 I 35 HoF Classics on Film series.
