The reel that Jen Carstensen is holding is how new movies come to the Bryant Cinema. They are then spliced together to make one big tape as seen on the middle spool or "platter." From there it’s threaded to the projector to show the movie. On Sunday evenings, it’s unspliced then reeled back on to the smaller reels to be sent back, and another movie is dropped off in its place. In the near future, a digital system will need to be purchased before the reels are no longer used in the movie industry. Clark County Courier photo
