Projection Instructions

This is one of four pages comprising the original projection instructions for showing the film Gone With The Wind. They were posted by theater projectionist and redditor DiMyDarling, who laments that digital movies have reduced his craft to pushing buttons. The comment thread has stories from quite a few other redditors who have worked as projectionists, both in the film and digital age. Link

Perhaps original instructions, but they've been re-typed using MS Word; the linebreaks are _horrible_ (a hallmark of Word) and I doubt a typesetter 80-ish years ago would have set a title centered, all-caps, underlined, italicized, with an exclamation point. All it's missing is some stars and a unicorn to tell you it is important....
