I have two DP70s, but I'm not
sure when they were installed. Catalog number is #3070 and
Serial Numbers are 1105 and 1106.
I wish I had more information about these projectors. They
have XENEXII Xenon Lamp houses from Kneisley Electric
Our theater is a John Eberson designed atmospheric theater
built in 1929. I'm sure these projectors are more recent. We
restored the theater from 1989 to 1995, so maybe they were
installed at that time. One of the sound processors is shot,
and we couldn't locate a source to repair it, nor could we
find the parts to address the sound situation. We are a
non-profit and have not used the projectors for years (Since
the early 90's) because lack of funding prevents us from
affording movie rights. Anyway, I am hoping to be included
on your list of DP70s in Indiana. I have attached a couple
of photos for your review.
