Hello fellow Mitchell enthusiasts. I have enjoyed learning about the Mitchell factory and so many members have added great research on this topic that I did some of my own. In 1929, Michell ran a campaign in American Cinematographer to alert his potential customers that he was building his new factory.

A brand new factory = fast shipment on new orders.

Each month during the construction, Mitchell would include a full page ad with an update on the factory construction.

I have included them here for your enjoyment.

When they were completely done, they just announced the fact with this plain text ad. Seems odd with all the other nicely tinted pictures but here it is non the less!

35mmKing,

Do you have the date that they moved to their new factory? Also I am curious as to what your research involved? If you care to share.

Thanks for the pictures,

Mark
