This listing is for a Vintage Bell & Howell 8mm Film Projector Model 253A.

This is a great old movie projector... it stores in it’s own carrying case - half of which contains the motor for the projector. The projector appears to be in working order as the motor runs when the toggle switch is flipped - however, the lamp did not turn on.

It appears to be complete and the case closes securely. This item will be well packaged for safe transit to your door.
