50’s/60’s Century 35mm projector stand pedestals info

posted by graphixv on April 11, 2008 at 10:35 am

We have a few different projector pedestals that appear pretty old.
I believe these are made by Century. I was wondering if anyone has any information on these. We are going to sell them.

I have no idea if these are still fairly common items or not. Here are a couple pics of one of the newer pedestal types (we have another type of pedestal that appears older)

In answer to your question- – I’ve seen plenty of these over the years. What you have is a a Cinemeccanica Projector Pedestal. I’ve usually seen these supporting a Cinemeccanica model V8 or V9 projector. It is not made by Century. I think they’re a bit more common in Europe than in the USA, but they’re not excatly “rare”. I hope this info helps.

Thanks, that helps. I would just rather see these pieces go to someone who could actually use them, rather than being sold for
scrap materials. The problem is, these are heavy and not exactly easy to ship.
