35mm Ross GC
Catalogue number 23
Typical projector to be found in many ABC, Granada and Essoldo theatres.
This projector represents the development of the projector for Natural Vision 3-D and Cinemascope with its 4000ft. spool boxes, four-track magnetic sound head and Anamorphic Lens (both seen at the foot of the projector). The lamp house is a Peerless Magnarc which originated from the long closed Gaeity Cinema in Bristol. These powerful arc lamps were necessary to provide increased light output for 3-D and Cinemascope. This Peerless has been converted to xenon.
