...I'm afraid the booth and some other now collectible items were destroyed or seriously damaged in the making of the movie.

The wiight of the phone would have killed em.

Here is an Interesting one and a 1978 movie set in the Futuristic year 2022 (watch it again before the year is gone). It is the "1984" of 2022 in many ways

twice in the movie "Soylent Green" Charelton Heston dials on what appears to be a (cordless) TouchTone trimline handset (in a call box) but then has to enter a code on a separate keypad on the phone base. Was Tone over-dialing thought of later? Makes no sense to dial on one keypad then enter a code on another.

This "Cordless trimline" handset concept (although rotary as I recall) is also seen in "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" 1972.
