yeah, take the projector carry on, for sure. also if you are taking film
with you, DOnt check it!!! take that carry on also. (assuming you are also
taking what you are going to project)
(but maybe you want to get a luggage cart or some set of wheels to help you

one thing I notice when I move a projector around, when I get to where I'm
going, and I turn it on, the bulb almost always blows. So when I travel
with a projector,
I take the bulb out, wrap it up and put it somewhere in my other carry on
also take at least one or more spare bulbs.

expect that the security people are going to scrutinize you more because
they probably have never seen a film projector before. I had an experience
at Heathrow in London. they were really scared of a super 8 projector that I
had because they didnt know what it was, they just saw a black box that when
it was xrayed it was a bunch of electronics. they had me pulled aside and
were all freaked out, until I told them it was film projector, I saw their
collective sigh of relief......
