classic lenses have been discussed here:
http://www.bigscreenbiz.com/ubb/Forum42/HTML/000179.html

the short answer is that there are ways but all involve some work and a little money.

Most of the pre-1953 classics were filmed in a 1:33x1 ratio. You can find the lenses you need at any theatre supply company.

Do you have any links to a theater supply company that would sell them?
