A couple of weeks ago Jim gave me a few pieces of movie film strip for some macro shots.  The pieces he gave me were from a movie called "The Chronicles Of: Narnia The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe."  He received them from a friend of his that used to work at a movie theater.  Jim also provided a photograph (below) from the same movie, and provided an explanation about the anatomy of the film strip.

From Jim: "35mm film print frames.  At far left and far right, outside of the KS-size perforations, is the SDDS soundtrack as an image of a digital signal.  Between the perforations is the Dolby Digital soundtrack (note the tiny Dolby "Double D" logo in the center of each area.)  To the right of this is the stereophonic analogue soundtrack, optically recorded as waveforms containing the audio signals for the left and right audio channels.  In the center is the anamorphic picture.  Anamorphic is a technique of shooting widescreen picture on a standard 35mm film.  The anamorphic projector stretches the image to widescreen format."
