Offered for your consideration is this very rare, large screen Moviola 35mm motion picture film editing machine originally designed, circa 1931.

This extremely rare editing machine is currently working and will run and view film. It is factory original. Not restored. Not modified. Not disturbingly repaired or converted.

Vintage Black Factory finish. Perfect for the cinema equipment or Disney collector or as a remarkable and large artifact sculpture. All original ID plates intact. This piece truly belongs in a museum.
We have not found another existing anywhere.

A truly wonderful artifact of the Golden Age of Hollywood. A vintage reel of 35mm film and take up reel are included for display.

As with all of our pieces, a signed and sealed “Certificate of Authenticity”, suitable for framing, is included with your purchase.

and intended to be at ‘Designer Net’

and ‘To The Trade’ price levels.

However, we ALWAYS welcome discussions and exploration

of your budgetary requirements

and how we MAY be able to help meet those cost targets

with additional discounts or courtesies.

~Like artifacts of an ancient civilization –

these rare legends

of early Motion Picture and related

have a secure and appreciating

place in history.~
