KodaScope G-Series projector was the ultimate machine for the home theatre in the early 1950s. It was by far the most expensive home projector Kodak offered at the time. It showed 16mm film using the best optics available. The lens allowed for projection of clear crisp images onto a special silver screen. The drive mechanism was especially engineered to eliminate jittery pictures and replicate the movie theatre experience.
Kodak found this high-end projector and their 16mm film cameras to be popular with well to do families. The booming post-war economy of the 1950s created great demand for quality gear that captured memories and provided entertainment. Kodak also provided access to their mail order film lending library with all their Kodascope projectors. Think of it as an early version of Netflix.
