The Beverly Drive
Photo taken of the main entrance. This was originally a single screen
theater and was converted to two screens about 20 years ago.
Concession stand full of hungry moviegoers. Some of those folks
are wondering who that tourist is with the camera.
Photo of screen one. Sorry I didn't get the dimensions, nice parking
Photo of screen two. This screen was added on later in the Beverly's
life and access to it was a little rough.
Outside shot of the booth showing the ports towards each screen.
A shot of screen two's Projector and platter. Note the trainee on the
A shot of the screen one's projector and platter system. In this photo
the assistant is being shown how to thread up the projector and how to
lift the platter ring.
Another shot of the platter for Number two. Both platters are Christie
A picture of the number two projector, a nice vintage Motiograph AA
and Motiograph SH7500 soundhead complete with mono pickups. The lamphouses
are both 4KW Strongs Super 80's. Both projectors are Motiographs and use
the same type lamphouses and utilize water cooled gates. However I was
snooping around and noticed that neither one had any coolant flow. bad
pumps. Yucky water too.
A little bit of clutter is a good thing. Didn't see any FILMGUARD
A nice shot of the Beverly's workbench. How bout that rewinder. Watch
Special thanks to Samual Hunter for the pics.
