I remember change overs in the sixties, but by the early to mid 70's we had flat platter feeds without any switchover.

Well,I suppose it's an.endearing term used in the states since I can remember. We've all seen it sometime or another. There's a mark that resembles a cigarette burn so to speak on the upper right hand corner of the frame which signals the projectionist to switch projectors. It's accompanied by a click or popping sound. .What I had seen was a small oval in the same place in the frame. The film  shot really well and I'd give it a B rating. Relatively cheap film at 9 million. Grossed 22 million the first week here. I'm sure it made the producers very happy.  http://www.jacobsen.no/anders/blog/archives/2004/12/20/what_are_the_black_dots_you_see_every_20_min_at_the_cinema.html
