DP70 no. 1820 is back almost where it was born: it's now on permanent display in the lobby of "Centrum Hofdael", arthouse cinema / general art-centre in Geldrop, close to Eindhoven, The Netherlands. We completed the machine with parts from various sources, it got new paint (specially mixed, with color and effect almost indistinguishable from the original Philips finish) and we built in a 400w halogen light source for demonstration purposes. In a display case are the box with 35mm parts, some sprockets, masks, the magnetic sound connection box and different film formats. 3 posters show the history of the DP70 and reprints of advertisements and the Oscar-story as published in Philips newspaper "Elagraph".

So, if ever in the neighbourhood: visit 1820 at hofdael.nl
