William E. Hewitt, the longtime Senator Theatre projectionist and movie house manager, who was a cinema technology expert, died of pneumonia Nov. 21. The Hamilton resident was 75.
"He was the man behind the Senator's curtain," said a fellow projectionist, Mark Kotishion. "Bill was a stickler for perfection. If the film had been made in CinemaScope, it had to be shown perfectly in CinemaScope. When the Senator got all the big premieres, Bill was the man in the booth making sure it all went off."
