Rare View-Master® Theatre Preview Cabinet

Here are photos of a super rare View-Master® Theatre preview cabinet in nearly pristine condition owned by Diane Casher. "We purchased it at a yard sale approximately 25 years ago from a gentleman whose family had owned a movie theatre many years previously," said Casher. "At that time we lived in the Canton,Ohio area." This is only the third cabinet known to be in existence.

The Charge at Feather River View-Master Preview Cabinet

The first cabinet known to be in a collection is owned by Wolfgang and Mary Ann Sell. Their four-foot wide cabinet also has several cards that promoted what 3-D film was featured in the viewers. It was the first one known to be in existence to survive from the 1950s. Pictured are the cards on display from The Maze and The Charge at Feather River.

Another cabinet shown below with a Sangaree card was owned by Bob Furmanek. "I got a call from the late Sheldon Aronowitz around in the early 1990s," said Furmanek. "He had been contacted by a friend in Pennsylvania who knew that he collected View-Master® memorabilia. His friend knew somebody on the demolition crew that was taking down an old movie theatre. The worker spotted the cabinet and was savvy enough to remove it from the building before it became buried in the rubble. Sheldon didn’t have room for it and offered it to me and I had it for a good decade before selling it to Dan Symmes. It went missing after Symmes passed away."
