\fi THE SPUr-APERTURE TEST —THE MOST CRITICAL COMPARISON TEST OF PROJECTOR PERFORMANCE. Here you see the reproduction of o split aperture test between CENTURY projectors and ordinary projectors. The CENTURY half of the screen proves CENTURY'S superiority— it's olive and it sparkles. The other half of the screen (on ordinory projector) is dull and uninteresting. Make this test in your own theatre and be convinced—change to CENTURY projectors for bigger box office returns. CENTURY projectors were the choice for Cinerama, the new spectacular "3 dimensional" motion pictures. You have much to gain by using CENTURY Projection and Sound. See your CENTURY dealer for a demonstration. %edii^ CENTURY PROJECTOR CORPORATION, new york. n y. SOLD BY HORNSTEIN, 712 N. E. First Are.
