The Dying of the Light explores the history and craft of motion picture presentation through the lives and stories of the last generation of career projectionists. By turns humorous and melancholic, their candid reflections on life in the booth reveal a world that has largely gone unnoticed. The result is a loving tribute to the art and romance of the movies—and to the unseen people who brought the light to our screens.
