Inside the jukebox reels are held on a vertical storage wheel behind the projector.

October 1963…

Latest thing to hit the jukebox-set at taverns and bowling alleys is movies: three minutes of sound film for a quarter. The screen looks like any 21-inch television set; the console under it resembles an ordinary jukebox with individual panels listing forty titles and a slot for your coin.

You make your selection on the Cinebox, insert your coin, press the starter button, then sit back and enjoy the feature. A storage reel spins to the selected film. Threaded on a projector, it’s reflected on the back of a rear-projection screen through a system of mirrors.

Cinebox was developed in Italy and marketed by Cinevision Corporation, Hicksville, L.I.
