In the classified section of Boxoffice Magazine there is usually an ad for an outfit wanting to buy used 35mm equipment. I assume they re-sell it to foreign markets.

Even most of the foreign markets are going digital. A few are supposed to be all digital by the end of the year. Plus more and more movies are opening the same date across the world.

So who cares what they do with it as long as they still want to buy it. Beats trashing it.

Okay Bob,

I called/emailed two people who have regularly advertised like you have said. Neither is buying film equipment unless it is less than 3 years old.

I am not trying to be mean as I have four sets of film equipment that will be needing to get rid of in the next 9 mos. as well.

It is just the reality of today.

Our digital conversion is schedule to take place next spring, with the reopening of the drive-in for our 60th anniversary season. The 35 mm equipment will go into storage, but I expect that it will eventually be sold for scrap within the next 12-24 months. We have 4 screens with all Century SA projectors/R3 soundheads and 4 Potts platters.

Good for you, Rick. Been a long time since the demo, eh?

We're going to try for one more season on film. Ready to move in any case, if that doesn't work.
