16mm Projector Installed

After a reassuringly busy winter we’ve finally had some time in the workshop and, along with a thorough spring clean, we today installed the Bell & Howell 16mm projector kindly donated to us some months back.

This is the exact same make and model that we believe was installed in each of the mobile cinema’s in 1967, so once we’d transferred the mounting base from the old projector plinth it couldn’t have been easier to fit  – it simply sat in place, perfectly housed. Next job on the list is getting power to it and putting a reel on!

Thanks once again to Chris Mellors of North Molton for the donation and research into which projector we needed.
