Why is that fascinating?

People have been printing much the same sort of thing for over 15 years, they would have to get it right eventually.

Except that film origination is still being used for a lot of cinematic release projects.

In Western countries very few release prints are made now, but they are still being made for special purposes. Kodak is the last remaining manufacturer of print film in the world, but they're still making it, so there is still a market for it.

Also, "Celluloid" hasn't actually been used since about 1950, as it's extremely flammable; not the sort of thing you'd really want sharing space with a carbon arc lamp :rolleyes:

King Kong premiered with Celluloïd film prints in the beams of high-intensity carbon arcs before around 5900 spectators. The screen was 33 on 44 feet. Sixteen projectionists overall, five at work: four seated at the projectors, one each, and a rewinder. Two additional prints ready

 

That was cinema.
