The Checking the Gate Podcast is a chance to look deeper into the movies we see, digging into the more in depth themes and ideas behind the films we watch. We believe every film has something to say. We share our thoughts and experiences with the movies and hopefully keep it entertaining all the while.
Every week we select a new movie to watch and hopefully will start to take requests as our audience grows.
“Checking the Gate” is a term for both camera personnel on set and projectionists in theatres. To check the gate, is to look for debris that may obstruct or contaminate the picture of the film, such as a loose hair or dust. After it is clear, you can move on knowing that the picture is crisp and clear.
