 Projection Booth   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Vitaphone equipment was the first form of practical motion picture projection to include sound and was installed in the Loew’s projection booth when the Theatre opened.
Vitaphone worked by having a large wax record playing in sync with the film; this system was called “sound on disk.” It’s said that a good Vitaphone projectionist was expert at nudging the phonograph stylus along so as to keep it in sync with the moving image.
Called “sound on film,”; this system proved superior to the old Vitaphone equipment, and was the movie industry standard until it was replaced by a magnetic strip in the 1950s, which has only recently been phased out by the introduction of digital sound and, even more recently, digital imagery.

 Field Guide To Titles And Credits
It is believed the onscreen numbers were a remnant of the old Vitaphone sound-on-disc shorts program, where the number onscreen corresponded to the correct number of disc that should be playing for proper sound sync.
This numbering system actually began to be used onscreen in 1943 (at which time WB ceased assigning "Vitaphone numbers" as the entire industry converted successfully to optical sound on film), with a hyphenated number denoting series entry number and the number of season.
Unlike Vitaphone numbers, these numbers were exclusive to the cartoon studio.
