The Projectionist reminisces on his life and his love of cinema through images of the films he screened and the footage he shot while working as a projectionist and amateur filmmaker. He reflects on his early experiences of the cinema; his first job as a projectionist, his views of the audience and how the cinema was a special place for him. As his memories progress, he remembers the rise of television leading to the closure of the cinema. In his redundancy, he turns his hand to filmmaking, capturing family memories at weddings and birthdays. The Projectionist dwells on the rise of the digital age, how the modernisation of equipment meant there was no need for him and his specialised skills. He longs for the days spent in his little room above the audience, cut off from the world, with the love of his life, cinema.
