There used to be two certified nitrate vaults at the old Deluxe General
Film Labs on Argyle which is now the home of Ametron Electronics. Last
time I was there, it looked like vaults might still exist.  Various
portions of the property are for lease.

Hi, Tiggers,

I'm posting this at the request of David Novack, who had asked the  
question earlier today on the Association of Moving Image Archivist's  

David's message:

Hello fellow film buffs and archivists:

I'm a member of AMIA and I'm interested to know if anyone has  
accumulated a listing of certified Nitrate film storage vaults - both  
above ground short and below ground.  I'm having trouble identifying  
such places over the web.
