Equipment for sale

posted by Elmo1 on October 9, 2009 at 10:30 am

The St. Elmo Historical Society has six 35 mm projectors for sale. Including the base, lamp, rectifiers, etc. We also have six film platters for sale and some tables. Some of this equipment is still in it’s original shipping containers. The rest is lightly used, with a little dust. Pictures of the Equipment can be found on our website at

We are a nonprofit group restoring small town 1941 theater, so the money from these items will go to good use.

To learn more about us visit our website at We’re always glad to hear from like minded people who have completed similar projects and always welcome tips, advice and encouragement.

These items were purchased from a multiplex that went out of business almost as soon as it opened. We purchased these items thinking we could put them to use. However we are far from being ready to show any movies so we are selling the equipment in hopes of putting the money to better use.

If you are interested in purchasing any or all of this equipment please contact our president, Connie Barnes. She can be reached at the St. Elmo Devonian office: 618-829-5801 or by e-mail at:

There is a typo in the email address in the above listing. The email address should be: My bad.

HI, If anyone out there knows how to become a volunteer usher at the Florida Theater, please email me. I’m retired and like to keep busy.
