Has this community REALLY been sitting idle for a year?

Well, no matter. Having had a 70mm print of Jurassic Park cone on me (on BOTH platters, mind you), I appreciate this shirt entirely too well. No doubt some of you will, too.

hmmmm, what do you mean by "cone" on you? and 70mm? wow, where do you use that, for imax?
[but back on topic, yeah, that is a pretty cool shirt for any projectionist to have!]
I've actually been out of the field over a decade, now. Never touched an IMAX print, and the mere thought makes me break out in a cold sweat. ;-)

We never did figure out what happened with the film, but somehow it creased along the sprocket holes coming out of the projector. So the print was taking up twice as much space as it was supposed to on the take-up platter, and we wound up with an epic brain-wrap on the feed platter. It took the better part of a week to finally get the print broken back down and into its cases.
interesting...never heard of the term or the event happening, but I'm grateful I haven't had to deal with it so far. and I hope it stays that way.
but definitely a crazy story.
Thank you for this post! Because of you I have a birthday present for my brother! :D
My work here is done. XD
Oh, that's not nice. I've had dreams like that. Srsly.
