Projectionist

Sean

When Sean was in the first grade, his local nuclear reactor melted down, contaminating the atmosphere with radioactive particles and altering his mindset -- much like his chromosomes -- forever. In addition to projecting films part-time at the New Beverly, Sean makes his living as a film archivist while working tirelessly in spare moments to archive and re-release the music of the Three Mile Island nuclear accident.
