antique projectors at the Paramount

Another shot from a walking tour of the Paramount Theater, an unparalleled deco building.  These projectors still work and are used in other old theaters in California.

  1. Isn't that great! Nice color, nice composition. That equipment looks, ahem, mature.

  2. Wow, you just don't see that anymore. I remember how the projectors (I don't know if it was this type or not) used to eat up the film when you were watching a movie.

  5. I miss the sound of old time projectors! In time I'll probably miss the sound of car engines in some nostalgic way too (as they become electrified and silent)Love this building..

  9. Seems like you and I were on the same track with old cameras and old theaters this week. This is a lovely shot. The stained glass in the background is just great.

  10. I think most of individuals posting comments here speech that paramount projectors area unit junk area unit those that have not used a dominant projector or have not seen it operating. I Paramount smart-905 from space|a neighborhood} merchant in my area and I’m terribly pleased with it. I watch blue ray movies with it and therefore the pictures area unit continuously sharp. I even have set the screen to 90” and therefore the pictures appear to fill my area. I even have seen somebody speech that a number of the buttons don’t work. Well, that's contrary to my experience; all the buttons area unit operating utterly. i need to say that I’m terribly pleased with my purchase.
