Below is a Screen shots from the Elton John film Rocketman in the part of the film that shows Elton playing in Pubs around the 1969 era, they used a Ditchburn MM200 in the scene, its great that the props actually used a machine of the right year and one that was in many pubs at this time, I have seen in films and TV when they use a jukebox that was not manufactured until many years later … but this time they got it right and its a Ditchburn.
