Two DP70 projectors (1737+2511) installed 1969. Now sold.

In 1987/88 I worked as a projectionist in a movie theater called Skandia in Halmstad, Sweden equipped with two DP70's. I found Skandia in your listings but without serial numbers and with the comment "Now sold". The machines was actually sold during my time and replaced with a Cinemeccanica non-stop system, running in non-non-stop operation ;-). A friend of mine in Stockholm also working as a projectionist was really chocked when I told him my company had replaced the machines and after a working with the Italian s**t for a while I understood what he meant... A time after they were sold, my friend found out that the machines were sold to a movie theater in Stockholm, and the next time I visited Stockholm we went by the movie theater in question and decided to go in and approach the projectionist just to have a look... I don't remember the name of the movie theater [Sandrew #1, ed] but I know exactly where it is OR maybe where it was. Do you want me to find out the name? It might be one that's already listed.

regards, Anders Westerberg, Halmstad, Sweden
