Setup - Install a hard drive in a server linked to a projector to access motion picture files, or access files via internet. As projectionist, I setup before every showing, create an automated playlist for a single screen or schedule showings for multiple screens on a theater management system.
Operations - Turn on the projector and test that images are in-focus, the correct size and appropriately lit. Also, adjust sound, tone and volume. As motion picture plays, I continue to monitor for image quality and sound issues.
Post Show - Once the picture ends, I turn off projector and prepare equipment for next show.
Maintenance - Responsible for equipment cleaning, maintenance and removing malware. Typically, I arrange for a repair person to visit on-site to fix the equipment, order parts, organize parts storage or write and manage maintenance and repair logs.
Other Duties - Projectionists usually manage the cleaning and upkeep of the projection booth. My employers require that I also take part in duties usually handled by ushers, ticket takers or other employees and take ticket payments.
