Slightly off topic, but...
That would only change the amount of frame advancement that the specially designed intermittent uses.
We had a 3 projector/sound donkey Cinerama house that was pretty much laid waste by the time I saw it. It looked as though someone had disassembled the 3 booths and just left every laying around on the floor and taking up more space than they would have if simply left intact.
I did maintain the 35/70 mm Norelco machines and Simplex XL sound gear that were installed after the 3 machine system was made obsolete.
I attended the one of the Dayton shows and although the prints were badly faded, it was still very impressive!

It may have run at a non-standard speed because Cinerama frames are six
perforations high instead of four. There are a number of Cinerama
collectors, and one had a set-up in a Dayton, Ohio theatre where
original prints were shown each weekend for about 6 years.
