Sprocket School is a collection of information, history, and suggested best practices for film exhibition in the 21st century. It is intended to be a practical resource for exhibitors, projectionists, archivists, programmers, and curators who want to safely continue projecting analog motion picture film of every gauge long into the future. It is to be used as a resource in combination with (but not as a replacement for) hands on experience and equipment manuals.
NOTE: This project is currently in development. Some articles are only sketches of information to be included as this project grows.
