New image added – a Da-lite add from the 50’s

I was doing some more research about the projection screen history, when I saw a nice ad from the 50’s for a Da-lite tripod projection screen.

It’s a nice advertisement and you can get quite a lot of information about home cinema and projection screens in those days:
– Projection screens were then called “slide and movie screens”
– A tripod was the norm for home cinema
– Screens could be had for $3.50

Fun stuff!

Here’s the ad, with some more information about cinema in those days here.
