SAN FRANCISCO, CA — The Roxie Cinema in San Francisco has a Silver Screen for sale. Not sure of the exact size, it was never used by the Roxie and has not yet been opened (it’s been in storage for years and years).
But if you are interested, let me know and I’ll open it up and send you all the pertinent info.
Somewhere on the tube it was shipped in should be the size on a label or written with a sharpie marker.
New silver screens were installed in movie houses in the early 1950s for 3D projection. Wonder if this screen dates to that era, delivered after the heyday of 3D movies and never used. In any case, I’ve passed along this info to 3D enthusiasts who might find a use for it.
