I am remodeling a church. I have clear head room for a projection room of 8 Wide and as much as I need deep. Is this enough room for two projectors? Any suggestions on room size?

Hello Nevada:

It would work. It might be a little tight on the back side of one of the machines. Are you looking to use a two projector change-over system? That's best if you're planning to run any classic films.

Check your local building & fire codes. They will specify the minimum size for a projection booth.

Since I am in the planning stage and have very little knowledge of the Booth, I can only say that if it can be done with one projector, I would prefer it. I do not have plans to show classic films. Just current and first run. I guess I need to get into modern projection booth so I know what I am talking about.

Ah yes, building codes. If I actually lived in a big town we would have such things but here it's "if you can build it - do it" Remember this is Texas, you can do what ever you want here.

Yes Nevada, you can do it with one projector and a platter system.

From my January 1938 construction guide:

Single projector booth assuming reel-to-reel operation.

48 square feet (add 24 square feet for each additional projector)

Can be 8 feet wide by 6 feet deep by 7 feet high.

Some booths were shown as 14 feet wide by 12 feet deep by 7 feet high.

At least 6" diameter duct for lamphouse exhaust cooling (depends on lamp wattage).

14' x 12' (168sf) is a very good benchmark and recommendation yet today! Please keep in mind the foot print of each item in a booth.

Single projector (pedastel or console) (42sf), standard size platter (49sf), make-up table (20sf), sound equipment (16sf), minimal trailer, film can, lens, bulb and supply storage (9sf). Total 136sf minimal. These totals include minimal service space (i.e. room for service panels and doors to be fully opened and room for an operator, tech or engineer).

Any other items you wish to bring into this space will eat up the remaining 32sf recommended FAST!
