Event description: In 2011, photographer Joseph O. Holmes, a chronicler of people and their work spaces, turned his attention to the "booth" and the near-invisible work of those who project movies into dark cinemas. This exhibition of more than 30 photos featuring projectionists in their domains, at movie theaters in and around New York City, shines a spotlight on what is quickly becoming a lost craft as celluloid gives way to digital formats.
