Does anyone remember George Curbison, he was my granddad and was one of the projectionists until he retired in the 1970s… be nice to know if anyone knew him!

Yes Mike,I’m glad I took a few pictures when I was at both Cinemas and home video of projection equipment running. Now with most places turning digital we will never see the like again.

Those pictures of the Projection boxes reminded me of our projection equipment at the ABC I was at. We had Philips DP75s Cakestand.. Morganite conversion and those nasty Milbank amps Hmm The automation I think was Gretton-Ward.. All those Fantastic Theatres wreaked by progress.. When I worked for ABC I did Relief Management at 30 plus Cinemas and only 3 I think are still open .. Run by independents..
