2002 photo from the Mark Ogden collection.
Close-up of the Kinoton. During the run of "This is Cinerama", this machine was threaded with the original 1952 "breakdown reel", which was basically 30 minutes of Lowell Thomas bs-ing while the problem was addressed. If enough people in the audience were interested, John would occasionally run it after the show, just as a hoot.
