Manufactured and innovated in Japan, Elmo 16-CL optical 16mm sound movie projector is simply one of the best, if not the very best, 16mm projectors ever made. It has silky smooth operation in both directions, quiet, powerful, with strong stunning sound. It was also marketed by Kodak as its Ektagraphic CT1000 model. It has an auto loader so all you have to do is place the leader in the film intake chamber and let the projector do the rest. Heavy to boot.
