Penton Movie

The John Penton Movie is proposed to be shown at the Montrose Movies Stadium (?) on July 22nd. They are doing it by reservations. It will "tip" on the 7th. I have no idea what that means.

DesmoDog is correct. The 105, 130 or 150 mm seems to refer to the headlight not the bucket, so the bucket and rim must be larger.
