Sorry to burst your bubble, but there ain't no projectionist in the projectionist booth, except when he pushes the "start" button, and when he's rewinding the film after the show. The projectionist is down in Cinema 17, starting the 5:03 showing of "P.S. I Love You". (The films are still delivered to the theaters in four or five of the single reel size containers you've no doubt seen, but they are all spliced together before the first performance, and they sit on a giant platter on one side and unspool, go through the projector, and respool on a giant platter on the other side. Seriously, the platter is abot 4-5 feet across.)

I go to a theater that uses digital projectors.
