From The New York Times comes The Last Reel: An Ode to 35-Millimeter Film, a short film about the end of...film. In the U.S., about 6% of movie theater screens still project using 35mm film projectors; digital is taking over, and the days of skilled projectionists are ending.

In this film, Steven Bognar visits the Little Art Theatre in Ohio to tell the story of the last reel of 35mm film projected there. Enjoy:
