I have nothing against the young people of today but I've found that the projection booth may not be the best place for them. Although they say they have experience in it seems that many of them have formed many bad habits like leaving their post once the movie running to make phone calls or chat with friends in the lobby. I found one young man with a group of friends up in the booth with him one night. I find the older people who run the booth much more disciplined.

Keep looking. There are many enthusiastic young people who have a good work ethic and are willing to learn the skills needed to become good projectionists. The important thing is not how young or old someone is, but how MATURE they are.

Likewise, many older folks may be looking for a part-time job or an opportunity to start a new career "in Show Business"
.

Good projectionists are hard to find. Reward them well, so they consider their job a career rather than just a paycheck.

John,

I COMPLETELY agree with you. It's not about the age, it's about the maturity!

There is something very unique about every good projectionist we've ever had. They are always consumed by their role in providing a perfect performance. Yet they never get the applause. No one really thinks about a projectionist except when things go bad but the reason they don't go bad is that someone is making sure of it! In my experience they can be young or old but a little age does a lot for the attention span. The younger you are the less likely you are to think that things can really screw up. But good heads come in all ages.
