Cinematic Machinery Collection of Soterios Gardiakos
Here are some views of my collection located in Aurora, Illinois, where this collection is kept. The main floor occupies an area of 1,848 square feet, (172 square meters) in size with a main room to show the collection and an adjacent conference. library and study area.
There is an even larger basement for storage of parts and a complete machine shop for repairing damaged parts and even making entirely new parts where it will enhance the particular projector. There is absolutely no drilling or any new machining on any projector or other equipment for that matter. All new parts are not painted so the viewer will be able to easily distinguish original equipment from new replacement with one exception that being the reel arm and shutter on the Warwick projector.
The collection is shown by special arrangements only, by contacting us.
