The small dot, oval or mark on the top-right corner of a film frame that signaled to the projectionist to change over from one projector (or film reel) to another (about every 15-20 minutes); nowadays, most film theatres have only one projector – the reels are spliced together into one giant roll and fed into a single projector from a horizontal revolving turntable called a platter.
