You might be better off making a loop for each projector.

I think it is going to be really
difficult to have a bunch of different projectors running the same film.

There are so many variables that you can't control.

Like when the claw mechanism moves, or even how clean is the electricity.

Many projectors need a lot of electricity, and if you are just taking it from
wall outlets, instead of a power drop, you are probably getting dirty electricity.

I.E. the voltage isn't exact all the time, causing variations in the projector speeds
and perfomance.

Good Luck, it sounds quite challenging.
