Vintage Film Projectors for Sale

posted by ksnow on August 23, 2005 at 6:12 am

The Elks National Home (established in 1903) has two original Vintage Film projectors for sale. They were used to show original films in our theatre in the 20s, 30s and 40s. For more information contact Kim Snow at 540-425-9305. These would be great film props for a movie about early film making or to go in a restored theatre.

Any information on the projectors would be nice, ie: brand name, age, are they just picture heads or are there sound heads and lamps along with pedastals, etc. Thanks

The projectors are by Peerless (Reflector Arc Lamp) Made by J. E. McAuley Mfg. Co. and the Reels are by Simplex. The reel boxes have National Theatre Supply Company (Complete Projection Equipment) tag on them. The projectors have 5 ivory knobs on them. They are on pedestals (3 flat footers). I’m sure there was sound heads, but couldn’t tell you if there are included now or not. I have pictures, but the website is unable to load at this time. If interested, call 540-425-9305 and I can send pictures. Have tried to e-mail and couldn’t do with first attempt.
