    Expectations duly tempered by Robert's - and others - comments, my copy arrived today. I cannot remove the smile from my face.

    Why exactly did they switch to Xenon bulbs?

    Cause every other industry moved off carbon-arc 50 years prior.Today(but not then) there are xenon that mimic the color produced by c-a, but...it is the flicker of c-a that can't be copied.

    They needed longer run times for projection automation that carbon arcs couldn't provide. Carbons max out at about an hour before they burn out and need replacing, xenon can run continuously for hours & hours.

    It happily plays in my multi-region player set to Region 'B'.

    Xenon bulbs allowed for the reels of a print to be splices together for a contentious show. Carbon arcs lasted about 30 minutes before they burned up and the projectionist had to monitor them to insure they were burning right. The switch to Xenon bulbs and projectors brought about the multi-plex. The digital projectors today still use the xenon bulbs. Some arenas still use carbon arc for spots.
