Art Theater Seeks 35mm Projector

posted by MJKelleher on July 19, 2004 at 10:40 am

BINGHAMTON, NY — Here in Binghamton, earlier this year we lost the Art Theatre, our last operating old-style theater, in a devastating fire (see previous story).

We are attempting to come back from the ashes. It won’t be the 90 year old theater, but we hope to bring the atmosphere and ambiance that you would have been able to find there. We’ve been showing art films in a local space to raise money and keep awareness up.

We have a wonderful opportunity to boost our efforts, but are lacking one vital piece. Does anyone know of a source for a working, reasonably priced 35mm projector? We’re scurrying and searching, but coming up empty locally. My hope is that someone out there will have what we need!

Thanks for the support and information we’ve received from the members of this site!

Then again I can’t help but recoomend the Film Tech website. Click on the “Products” link and you should be set. I bought many of my theatre’s supplies from companies endorsed by this site and I was never disappointed.

Thanks for the links. We’ve found a projector, and on the same coast! Not installed yet, but coming soon.

I’ve bookmarked your recommendations, and will be passing them on to our theater guru.

went to grad school in Binghamton, and went to many movies at the Art. Sad to hear of the fire, and good luck to you.
