Object Description

A collection of 9 vintage cinema projection reels or spools. Dating to circa 1920, these traditional English cinema reels have an even surface rust finish making for a stylish vintage decor in an industrial or rustic interior; they could even form part of a small or large collection.

The set could be displayed as pictured or in a way of your choosing.

In 2013, digital projection overtook reel projection across the world. Although reels are still used in production today, far fewer were made after this historical move in the film industry, making these cinema spools quite the find.

We also have another set of 9 cinema spools available.
