Can anyone who's running Kong tell me the distance from the platter ring to the end of the movie. I have a smaller then standard diameter platter. I'm trying to figure out if I HAVE to run an intermission or if it'd just be a good idea...

Depends - what is the size of your platter ring?

Hmmm, I thought that part was standard across all platters. Oh well, the platter ring is 13" diameter and the platter itself is 48" diameter. I had to put an intermission in for Return of the King but that was about fifteen minutes longer, if I remember right.

I haven't measured the distance. But, our Christie platter can hold the entire print and has about 5-6 inches to spare before hitting the edge of the platter. I was able to put the print together, clamp it with Goldsberg clamps and move the print up what seems to be a million steps to the projection room. I'm sure that when I transfer the print to our Alpha platter, it will be a tight fit, as it isn't the same diameter as the Christie. At least it should be easier carrying it down the stairs!

How about a good place to have an intermission? Hopefully, somthing in the middle (after they leave Kong Island between reels X and Y, for example). anybody know where that occurs?

I read somewhere else the middle of reel 6. I looked for a good place when I made up my print last week and couldn't find one, so I didn't put an intermission in. Reel 6 seems too late anyway in a nine reel movie.

Adding an intermission may violate your license agreement.
