Hank, by the time I got back to the post here to write down your address it was gone. Can you please send me your address via email to
Thank You Hank, I will send you the envelope.
That is interesting Hank, sounds Iike Newman was into a good variety of metal works.
Hank, I do not run a theater, I am just a collector and this ticket shredder was an item we purchased for our home movie theater.
Hank, From what I can tell so far the ticket shredder was originally red in color given what I can see from the inside of the cabinet. Although there is manufacturing information identifying NEWMAN MFC. CO. CIN. O., there are no other ID plates attached identifying the theater. My primary clue was inside the cabinet within the metal box there are thousands of shredded Andalus Theater tickets like the examples I show in the posted photo. I am located in Central Illinois and I had never visited the Andalus Theater or that area of Ohio.
Hank, Thank you for the fast response. I have posted a photo of the ticket taker (shredder). I purchased the ticket taker many years ago from a local shop that sells used office furniture and occasionally some antique items show up.
Hank, would you have any photos of the Andalus Theater that you can email to me? I have the original ticket taker (shredder) from the Andalus and I was hoping to obtain some photos and additional information.
