Vintage Film Projectors for Sale

posted by ksnow on August 23, 2005 at 4:12 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.

There are many ways to get from anywhere in Russia to the ski resorts in Finland .

We decided to tell you about the most popular ways to travel to Finland from Russia! The transport connection between the two neighboring countries is well established. Regularly developing new routes and flights, and the number of transport companies offering their services to tourists, is constantly increasing, so it will not be difficult to get to any liked resort of Finland!

By car to Finland When traveling by car, the border with Finland can be crossed through one of the nine international checkpoints:

Raja-Jooseppi (Raja-Jooseppi) – Lotta Kelloselkä – Salla Vartius (Vartius) – Lutta Niirala – Wärtsilä Kuusamo – Suopera Imatrankoski – Svetogorsk Nuijamaa (Nuijamaa) – Cowberry Vainikkala Vaalimaa – Torfyanovka

Traveling by private car, it is worth paying attention to the rules of carrying ski equipment. During transportation, sports equipment must be stored in a special box, or be securely attached to the railings on the roof of the car. The equipment should not exceed the restrictions on the permissible load on the roof of the car, installed by the manufacturer. Pakettiauton vuokraus –

In advance to assess the situation at the entrances to the border points and, thus, to avoid queues, the web cameras installed on the borders of will help .

By bus to Finland Bus trips to Finland are carried out from several Russian cities. For example, from St. Petersburg, buses run to Helsinki, Lappeenranta, Jyvaskyla and Turku. There are regular direct flights from Murmansk on the Murmansk-Ivalo-Rovaniemi route. Traveling by bus is a fast, reliable and inexpensive way to get to Finland. The main advantage of this type of transport is that the buses pass the Russian-Finnish border out of turn. Due to the fact that regular buses run strictly according to the schedule, you can clearly plan the time on the road. Regular buses are spacious and comfortable. In each there is a luggage compartment in which it is possible to transport ski equipment.

By train to Finland With the launch of the high-speed train “Allegro”, St. Petersburg and Helsinki became close, like never before. The journey time by train is only 3.5 hours. Between Moscow and Helsinki, the high-speed night train “Leo Tolstoy” runs. The journey time is about 13.5 hours. In the trains passengers are provided with a wide range of services. The passage of border and customs formalities occurs during the journey.

High-speed trains run long distances also between the cities of Southern Finland.

Arriving from Russia to Finland by train, you can continue your journey further in Finland. To make a transfer from train to train is not difficult, and the bus service is coordinated with the train schedule. The schedule of intercity buses can be found at bus stations or on the website

Railway communication in Finland is carried out by trains of various types. Modern trains “Pendolino” run between the major cities of Finland. During long trips, the needs of families with children are taken into account. In trains “InterCity” there are family coupes and playgrounds for children.

Night trains in which conditions exist for the transport of cars are an opportunity to travel throughout the night through the whole country to the north of Finland. In this train you can relax in comfort and continue the next morning with a private car. Night trains follow the following directions: Helsinki-Rovaniemi-Helsinki, Helsinki-Kolari-Helsinki, Helsinki-Oulu-Helsinki, Helsinki-Kemijärvi-Helsinki, Tampere-Rovaniemi-Tampere, Tampere-Kolari-Tampere, Turku-Rovaniemi-Turku, Turku -Kolari-Turku.

Tickets for international or long-distance trains can be purchased at railway stations or online .

By plane to Finland Air mode of transport is the fastest, but not the cheapest way of traveling. However, airlines, often, offer tourists to buy tickets for special promotions or discounts. On the comparative site you can choose the most suitable flight, in accordance with the cost, time of departure and arrival, the number of transfers, as well as the time spent on the road. Direct flights from Russia to Finland are carried out by Russian airlines Aeroflot, Rossiya Airlines, Severstal Aircompany, as well as Finnish airline Finnair. All planes land at the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, which is located 20 km from Helsinki. At Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, you can change to an internal flight and go further, for example, to Northern or Central Finland.

Pay attention to the rules of carrying ski equipment in aircraft. Many airlines equate ski equipment to one luggage. Charges for transportation of ski equipment are not always charged. Everything depends on the rate of transportation, as well as on the amount of other luggage. It is better to know the maximum weight of one set of ski equipment available on board. It is necessary to remember that each airline can have its own rules.

A trip to Finland can now be easily planned using the route planner and timetables . The scheduler will help you choose the fastest route or one that has the least number of transplants included. The Scheduler allows you to select a specific type of public transport on which you prefer to travel, or mark all possible options to compare the search results and choose the most suitable route.

Choosing a resort option accommodation , located in the remoteness from the ski slopes, do not worry about how to get to the trails. On the territory of resorts, there are usually special buses that will take you directly to the foot of the hills. If necessary, you can always contact one of the many taxi services that operate in Finland 24 hours a day.
