Compco Metal 8mm Motion Picture Film Reels and Cans

This post was originally published on a blog for our Etsy shop, The Peddler's Cart




They used to hold someone's home movies from the 1950's, but now these two empty Compco motion picture film reels and their metal storage canisters would be perfect vintage decor for a home theater!


The 6" reels used to hold 300 ft of 8mm film.


There are no apparent dings or dents and the cases and reels are still shiny and clean.


Originally from the Compco Corporation, Chicago, Illinois.


Hang them on a wall or display them on a shelf. They could even be used a props in your own home movies (student films, anyone?).

These film reels and canisters are available for purchase from our Etsy shopUpdate: This item has sold but you can find other vintage items available in our Etsy shop!

We also have a pair of smaller Brumberger Cases with a single film reel available. Update: The Brumberger reels have sold
