Portland Projector Guys

May 28, 2007

I posted on a local forum an Elmo CL-16 as a give away item, and was contacted by exactly one person. That person is a fellow named Rob who does some projection at the Hollywood Theater. As it happens, Rob works on CL-16 amongst other projectors. Rob is part of a loose-knit group of projector and film collectors who reside here in Portland. In the last few years, I have met probably a dozen people who have film collections and home theaters, and one fellow, Jack, who repairs Auricon sound amplifiers, and once visited the old Bach-Auricon factory just before it was demolished to recover parts. This groupd of individuals gives new meaning to the term "film underground".
