I never said it was in good shape, did I? There’s a scuff mark on it and I received a replacement screen. Now I’m selling the new one with the scuff mark.

Any chance on getting a system in place to allow the posting of photos?

Ken, what are your thoughts on the CP-650? I’ve been told to stay away from the CP-65 due to age and lack of support…

My theatre opened Feb 1, 1949 and played This Time For Keeps. It is a Stran-Steel made, Quonset “40”, Type “B” October 1947 model. The plans are about 26 pages long with another 3 pages for the theatre layout and design.

popcornn commented about Time-O-Matic Chaser light control box repair on Apr 6, 2008 at 6:59 am

I spoke to the ‘sign police’ late last week and I HAVE to repair the existing unit. Otherwise I lose my grandfathered rights to having non-conforming lights and I would have to fall under the current zoning regulations. So…back to square one. Ken, you’re right about the parts I need. Now all I have to do is find someone who stocks them. Thanks again.

No luck with either place, Ken. I’m back to square one. You’re right…I need the studs and the contacts with leads. Hmmmmmmm…

Any other ideas? I am grandfathered for the lights on my building and the moment I upgrade, I’ve been told I have to not have them flashing since they are not allowed under the bylaw.

Glenn…I will email you too.

Hey Ken

Thanks for that. I just tried calling them, but was told that there is another company ‘in town’ that services their older products and may have the parts. I’ll give them a try in the morning. Do you think they would have a service manual too?

Hi Lisa

If it is what I am thinking it is, I will give you $600 instead of $300.

popcornn commented about Dolby Processor about to pack it in on Feb 8, 2008 at 5:25 pm

thanks. we’re wanting to upgrade our sound anyway, so i’m not being too picky at this point. our system right now seems to have a ‘heartbeat’ when it’s on surround. the heartbeat can still be heard when we turn off the surround sound. digital would be a lot better. i think our stuff is close to 15 years old…

Me too. No reply. Need platter system.

popcornn commented about Dual projectors versus platter on Aug 16, 2007 at 1:27 pm

Right now we are a 2nd run theatre. 2 projectors including a 3rd 16mm machine. I plan on continuing 2nd run shows but not totally sure what is the best way to go as we are a little short of projector room space with 3 machines. Yes, I could go to the platter system and put the other 2 in storage…might be able to keep 2 machines and put a platter in as long as we move the 16mm. Just not sure how much room they take up…

How about the cleaning of hot dog/nacho related spills on seats? Isn’t that a concern with those types of products?

popcornn commented about Wanted: Automaticket Ticket Machine\Dispenser on Jun 21, 2007 at 5:20 pm

Oops…sorry about that. I do know that the theater I am working on purchasing does indeed have 2 of these machines you’re talking about. One is still in use and the other is a backup that is in storage but never used….both are from the early 1940s.

popcornn commented about 2nd run film rotation on Jun 14, 2007 at 7:36 pm

We have the local college that has their own theater and they play a mixture of 2nd run and art films, but its on campus and not really promoted to the general public (but they are welcome to attend).
