Number of reels used in the theaters.
Few people realize the number of pictures that are nightly presented at each of the moving picture shows In the city. The pictures, each taken separately and distinctly, different from the others, are on reels, to the number of 16 to the foot. The reels contain 1,000 to 1,200 feet. They are run off at the rate of 1,000 feet every twenty-flve twenty-flve twenty-flve minutes. At the Bijou theater one or more reels are used for each of the seven successive shows of the evening, a total of not far from 150,000 pictures.
