About Reel-to-Reel 35mm projection: This is an encore presentation of an archival print being specially projected at Circle Cinema with the purchase of additional and necessary equipment to screen vintage motion pictures. This was made possible from The Hardesty Foundation who purchased it for our “90 By 90” Capital Improvement Campaign Fund.
