The documentary project visited with retired projectionist Paul Adair, who is one of the most amazing collectors of everything 'motion picture'. Paul spoke to us about the art of showmanship that was an integral part of the exhibition business in the early days, then showed us his collection of movie posters, film trailers, his 3D collection that includes a process he refined for its projection, several mini theaters and a lab for processing and printing 16 & 35mm prints. Paul was responsible for helping to save many of the archival photos and artifacts from Interstate in Dallas after it closed doors in the early '70's.
