I will miss (not) all those authentic scratches, dirt, lousy operator (usually the candy bar boy these days) flexible programs (do you know how long it takes to make up and break down a feature for platter projection?) and projector weave. And I thought I was the inflexible grey beard.
As a closing gesture before a cosmetic and technological remodel, our local historical opera house showed Lawrence of Arabia in 70mm, the last showing of film in our town. The film was in near-perfect shape and was quite the film spectacle, I was glad I went. I shot Tri-x of the projectionist loading it up.
There are so many reasons to shoot black and white film, having it be a bit more separate from the MP industry is a really good one, especially in Ilford's case...
