Regardless of the type of dimmer equipment selected by the theatre owner or his consulting engineer, it is most essential that it be properly installed by the electrical contractor and turned over to the theatre owner in good operating condition with complete instructions for operating, maintenance and servicing. It is likewise essential that the theatre operator understands that proper maintenance of this equipment is necessary to provide long life and continued eiiicient operation of the dimmer equipment. The manufacturers have designed the theatre dimmer equipment to reduce maintenance costs and replacement to an absolute minimum. However, it is impossible to engineer features to overcome carelessness, neglect or improper use of the apparatus. The dimmer equipment is as much a part of the show as the carpet on the floor or the carbons in the projection machine, and it is only by the proper operation and coordination of all devices in the theatre that the owner secures the maximum return on his investment.

You boys have a cinch we hear people say, To us these remarks are just a few laughs.

All you do is watch movies from day to day. They donlt realize when they chance to speak

Nothing to do, but look at a screen, That our so called pleasure is seven days a week.

And enjoy what comes out of a movie machine. Sunday and Monday are all the same,

If I had your job, Ild work without pay, If you happen to work at the movie game.

Just to sit and watch each photoplay. This brings up a proverb, a well phrased line,

Now these are the comments from other crafts, uEvery onels grass is much greener than mine!"
