    I've been asking that question for a few years- I have access to several old theater and drive-in trailers that I'd love to have on video, but there aren't many places that can do it. I've heard of a place in San Francisco but they charge a ridiulous amount, something like $100 per minute of film. To do it right you need to use real telcine equipment; pointing a camcorder at the screen will give you a flickery picture.

    I have 22 reels of trailers. I'd love to get them transferred but it's obviously very cost-prohibitive. I've been slowly getting rid of trailers that are on DVD since I'm moving away from film-in-the-house since it's SO impractical, expensive, bulky, and hopelessly annoying. The ones I'm keeping are either not on LD or DVD, or they are and they're just too good to get rid of. If anyone knows where I can get some transferred CHEAP please let me know.
