How does shutter work on Canon EOS 5 film camera? Will long exposure drain the battery?

I've read somewhere that mirror is held up by some electromagnetic mechanism, and hence will drain the battery quickly when using long exposure. Is that true?

It was also suggested to press shutter and take the battery out as I recall.
