  1. It had better be a couple. Ilford once said they planned to be the
    last man standing making B&W materials: to be the last soldier
    standing after a battle is not counted as victory.

    OK, I can see where there might be confusion: lenses usually have
    "focus rings" which allow them to register properly in the lens
    holder of the projector. (Side note: a good theatre should be
    able to project at least four different aspect ratios: 1.33/1.37,
    1.66, 1.85, and 2.35/2.40:1; this requires up to four different
    lenses, depending on the screen configuration.) With the exception
    of one particular make of projector (Kinoton), these do not assure
    precise focus when the lens is inserted. They simply get the lens
    focus in the ballpark for the start of the show; it must then be
    tweaked by hand (almost all cinema lenses are f/2.0, and longer
    lenses give greater depth of field). The type of film stock and
    the gate tension also affect the focus of the screen image. All
    projectors have a normal "focus" knob to adjust the position of
    the lens relative to the film plane.
    It sounds as if that theatre was managed by some dim bulbs (no pun
