Old 35mm carbon arc movie projectors wanted

posted by cameragraph on December 1, 2006 at 5:35 am

My name is Tom Wilson and I am an avid collector of vintage 35mm carbon arc movie projectors and old theater equipment. If you have any old projectors or equipment available for sale or for trade please give me a call at 937-477-9855. I will travel anywhere in the continental USA to pick up equipment that I purchase. Also looking for a free standing ticket booth, marquee signs, light fixtures and decorative poster cabinets etc. Don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have something.

I have two Motiograph 35mm carbon arc projectors with pedestals that were part of Frank Llyod Wright’s Taliesin East near Spring Green, Wis. I have them in heated storage for the last 10-½ years, and have to let them go. Norm Lenburg ()

Hi Tom, sorry but I cannot ring you direct so will give you my email if interested. Problem is I’m in Australia. Maybe you know someone over here who may be interested The goodies I have are. A Pope skeletal projector stand with lamp house intact and attached, I have moved it about quite a few times over the years and fingers crossed, the mirrors have survived. When I acquired it from the cinema it was used as a glass slide projector for advertising prior to the movie. Many sq. glass slides approx 3" square. When removed it was fully functional and just the asbestos covered power cables were cut in the removal process. Feel free to contact. My interests and circumstance have changed, so I have a view to sell pending an appropriate offer. Regards Peter.

Hi Tom, I’m a 4th generation theater owner and have all the equipment we have used in that period of time. Unfortunately, the time has come for us to stop storing it the livery stable we recently sold. We have Strong, Simplex, Brenkert, Motiograph, Christie, Century, Potts, Ashcraft, RCA, and other brands including Powers dating back to the late ‘20s. We also have seats and speakers. Please email me soon. () We will have to have this stuff out within the next couple of months. Thanks, Matt
