I worked at the Roxy an Majestic as a projectionist for some years with Fred Schofiled and Cedric Shaw was Manager. The equipment at the Roxy was Kalee Model 12 Projectors mounted on Western Electric Universal base sound heads and B T-H arcs The sound was Wetern Electric Mirrophonic system later updated to Westex system. The Majestic equipment was all by B T-H.
