Notes and Comments
This was the first projector designed by Jacques Bogopolsky after he formed the Bolex company. Unfortunately, I have little information on this model, apart from what I've been able to translate (poorly, via Babelfish) from French advertisements of the late 1920s.
Andrew Alden, in his book, A Bolex History, identifies two versions of the Auto Cine. The first, designed to project 16mm film; the second version, a dual guage projector with interchangeable sprockets for projecting both 9.5mm and 16mm film. 
Special thanks to Heinrich Kriesi, a collector from Switzerland, for providing much of the missing details and specifications of this projector.
