Two Norelco AAII 70mm Projectors on Display @ Claremore Museum of History at Claremore, Oklahoma

Machines belong to Ben Kehe. See Tulsa (OK).
Oklahoma City Al Monte Theatre (P)
  Two DP70 (2323+2324) Machines came from Continental Theatre in Tulsa, Oklahoma. To the best of my knowledge, they are still in service at the Al Monte. Ben Kehe
Oklahoma City New Cooper Theatre (*)
  Formerly Harber Theatre, 1200 seats, opened 1960
Oklahoma City State Theatre (*»)
  "Oklahoma!" opened 14.08.1956 and ran at least 15 weeks. 800 seats
Oklahoma City Tower Theater
  Two DP70 equipped with Ashcraft Core-lites.
  Regarding the Two DP70’s at the tower theater in Oklahoma. I just walked the abandoned space and they are both still there and seemingly in FANTASTIC condition.

I am curious to know more about what information and processes on ensuring their operation as the new owners are not very aware of what they have, but are interested in restoring them to operational status.
  I’d love any insight you could provide.

Tulsa Motion Picture Projection Services, Inc. Ben Kehe (p)
  Two DP70 (2257+2258). This pair is probably one of the nicest in existence. They came out of an audience reaction room in Hollywood and they are clean, the paint is very good and they both have their complete conversion kits in the original cases. Both machines have the short lamp tables which works out very nicely in a screening room environment. Both machines are complete with their original magazine doors, etc. Best Regards, Ben Kehe  23.02.2004
Tulsa Fox Theatre
  Two DP70 (2420+2421). Installed November 1966. Removed December 1975 when cinema was twinned. DP70 to Mann Theatres warehouse in Los Angeles (CA) for parts.
Tulsa Brooke Theatre
  Two DP70 (639+638) from Ritz Theatre. Closed. "The Sound of Music" played 16 months with one 70mm print. One DP70 (639) remains today in the lobby of what used to be the Brooke Theatre. This building is now a restaurant with 639 on display. 638 is in storage in a garage about three blocks from the Brook Restaurant.
Tulsa Continental Theatre
  Two DP70 (2323+2324). This was a D-150 house originally built by George Gaughn of Oklahoma City. He built three Continentals; one in Tulsa, another in Oklahoma City and another in Denver, Colorado. These two machines were sold to an individual at Weatherford, Oklahoma when the Continental in Tulsa closed. This person stored them and then sold them to whoever built the Al Monte. I personally ran alot of 35mm and 70mm through this pair of machines when I was a relief projectionist at the Continental in the 1970s. This is a great pair Norelcos and to the best of my knowledge, they are still in service at the Al Monte. Ben Kehe
Tulsa Rialto Theatre
  Two DP70 (639+___). This pair of machines with serial numbers in the mid 20's were originally installed in 1956 for the Oklahoma premier of "Oklahoma!". A friend of mine has pictures of this installation along with a picture of Shirley Jones talking on the phone in projection room on premiere night. In 1958 the DP70s were moved to the Ritz Theatre in Tulsa. Ben Kehe
Tulsa Ritz Theatre (*»)
  Two DP70 (639+___) from Rialto Theatre 1600 seats. In 1960 they were moved to the Brooke Theatre in Tulsa.
