Young “Stranger Things” Fans Are Confused by All Those Scenes in the Darkroom

Season Three of “Stranger Things” had a lot of scenes with Jonathan developing photos. And apparently young people were totally confused by it because they’ve never used film and don’t know what a darkroom is.
Someone asked about it in an online forum, and had NO IDEA what the weird “red room” was all about. Quote, “He puts the photo in water, and somehow this makes it more clear?”
The first few answers were helpful. People explained that film has to be developed in a chemical bath, and normal light ruins the process. Then other people started posting about how they suddenly felt VERY old.
