American Theatre Equipment Company is one of the oldest Motion Picture Equipment companies in the United States. Starting in the early 1900's as American Slide Company, we manufactured and distributed glass lanternslides to the growing entertainment industry. In 1908 the name was changed to American Theatre Equipment Company with the addition of moving picture equipment, accessories and related supplies.

Now, under the ownership of the John Williamson Co., Inc., we sell, rent, service, repair and restore motion picture and related theatrical equipment. Representing most of the major manufacturers, we maintain a full service staff to support our "Service after the Sale" philosophy.

We have participated in many projects all over the US,
