Perfect for the collector!
This is a standard 8 mm film cartridge movie projector made circa 1963-64 by Technicolor Industries in Hollywood, CA.
It’s so cool looking! I just like it as a conversation piece, but it does work! When plugged in the lamp and the projector do their thing. I haven’t inserted a cartridge, but I’m assuming this baby is in good working order as it’s very clean and in good shape. It weighs a very sturdy 15 lbs!
Something to think about: adapt it to the new technology, add an adapter for smart phones, and project your images and movies on the wall with an instagramy type filter – boom – go back in time!!
It has a handle for easy mobility.
