    Wanted: Drive-in theater equipment

    Hello, I’m in need of very unusual drive-in speakers. Ones that no one has seen before…the truly bizarre!!! Odd shapes, “stereo”“ones with multiple cones per unit, Polemounts! I’m paying over $200 for each speaker I can add to my collection. Contact me even if it’s just to share pictures.

    I have hundreds of photos of many nice, unique speakers. Also, I can send you a list of everything made in speakers to help you organize your collection. I also collect weird junction boxes and heaters and catalogs/brochures for drive-in equipment. Finders fees paid…Any help appreciated. Mathew…(408) 923-0919

    19 Drive-In for sale

    CUBA, MO — If you’re in the market for one, the 19 Drive-In is for sale. With its future in doubt, this is the time to save this treasure.

    Located just off I-44, the North 19 has been showing movies on its single screen since 1954. It has a 250-car capacity and a few old-fashioned speakers so you don’t have to wear out your car battery by listening to the soundtrack over the satellite radio.

    Old movie theater enthusiasts are concerned that, owing to its prime location, the North 19 will be bought by some commercial developer and demolished.

    Old 16 and 35 MM Films

    We have about eighty old 16 MM and 35 MM films that we need to unload. We apparently cannot sell the 35 MM films (I am not sure how these were obtained) but we need to get them to what ever is the proper place so we can develop the storage space for a balcony concession stand. We are putting a list together of the film titles. Contact me if interested.
