Hi Jonathan,

That is very strange. I have projected *The Flicker *2 or 3 times so far;
print always came from LUX and the sound of course was optical and on the
print. I believe the light patterns (the actual flick) are synchronized
with sound in a very precise manner, as there is a crescendo in both image
and sound, reaching a peak aproximately at the middle of the film, and then
(optical and sonic) rhythm begins to decend. So, good luck! You may need to
ask for an explanation though.

The Warning also had a different soundtrack on it, if memory serves...
