Welcome to Primolux

Primolux specialise in the restoration and preservation of 35mm cinema projectors, specifically pre-war Kalee and Simplex machines.

The digital revolution continues apace in the commercial cinema and projectors which are only a few years old are being sent for scrap. Because of space constraints we concentrate on pre war Kalee and Simplex machines. We just hope that there are other people out there who are Ross and BTH and fans.

As far as post war machines are concerned we concentrate on Century and Westrex machines.


The Regal Fordingbridge
