Making a place for air to flow to the projectors

What is only 3 feet tall, but 20 feet wide? Answer: The crawlspace under the pit!
There is a reason it is called a crawlspace, and it’s NOT because of the excessive headroom.

Mike Lawrence, chief projectionist at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center begins to
disassemble the old cable ducts that were installed in 1973 to carry control signals for the Spitz Space Transit Simulator.
Loving called the starball because of its unique spherical shape, it was removed in 2001 and replaced by the Evans and Sutherland Digistar II.
That unique piece of equipment has now been removed and the space was needed for airflow for the new system.

John Young ducks into the crawlspace to remove the old, heavy and very dusty cable trays.
After the new installation this space will be all but inaccessible.
