"Circus" (s) 1973 Chicago Steve Kraus [11.12.2018] on Facebook:

"Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry had a theatre as part of their circus exhibit sponsored by Sears [1973]. It was shot in 5/65 turned on its side to showcase aerial wire acts. But projection was not 70; they used 16mm triple frame on a specially adapted Century projector. Film handling was with an endless loop device atop the projector. Sound was 35mm full coat on a dubber in the next room with the film running up and down over many rollers. I don’t recall the track arrangement but there were some holes punched to trigger effects like a strobe in the theatre."
