This is a self-threading cine projector for silent 16mm film. It appeared five years after the first 16mm projector, the Kodascope (later, Kodascope A) and was just as different as the Cine-Kodak B camera had been from the first Cine-Kodak. The position of the spools was changed to the top and back, rather than top and bottom. Also this was Kodak's first self-threading projector.

The projector takes up to 400 feet of 16mm film, it can run films backwards, and has a still-picture device.
