Travelling cinema projector

Type: Camera
Camera Type: Film Camera 35 mm
Camera Brand: Zeiss
Lenses Brand: Other
Lens Mount Type (Photographica): Other
Condition: Used

A special projector. In our possession since the early 1960s. We have used it up to the 1970s to show movies. Always stood in the attic and now uncovered.
What is known to us: In the 1940s and 50s a Dutch person (name not known) travelled to fairs and would show movies in a tent or room. These were silent movies, American feature films, nature films and the news. I remember we had the movie: 'Iwan the terrible' and an American movie: 'Kans om rijk te worden'. Unfortunately, we no longer have the movies, they had to be moved out of the house due to explosion risk (we had too many of them). Early 1970s we took them to the Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, but they could not use them, it was too much film material. So, the movies are unfortunately gone, including a nature film, featuring a fast-forward movie of an opening rose and a kind of journal.
But the projector was a surprise as well, because they knew of its existence, the story of a travelling person with a projector, but this was not registered. While all cinema projectors had to be registered. But this projector was nowhere to be found.
In the 1970s we had a lot of fun with it, watching the silent movies in a small room, playing ‘movie theatre’
It is a Kinobox Zeis Ikon with a Kino Star lens f = 10 cm. In addition, there is a variable resistor, because power was still not even and stable everywhere. It also includes a loose coil with mechanism, to rewind the movies.
On the inside of the door is a description in German, English and French. The size is 52 x 45 x 23 cm.
Given the size, you may want to pick it up.
