Art Deco Drive-In Movie Theater Speakers

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

You can be the only kid on the block with this great collectible. The striking chrome speakers easily lift off the center post. They were designed to hang on the window of the drive-in movie patron's auto. The speakers are actually still functioning. To highlight this fun collectible, there are two beautiful green faceted jewels on either side which light up. On top of all that, we have an original ticket stub from the theater where they were used. Everything is in original condition except the red center post which has been professionally repainted. It is signed by the maker, "Projected Sound, Plainfield, Indiana." These were sold to United Artists Theaters. All of this is noted on the speakers. The ultimate toy for the movie lover or collector.
