Film and Sound Archiving

It’s a Wrap…Send it to the Salt Mine

A familiar phrase within the film and television industry, Send it to the Salt Mine has come to stand for incomparablly secure and remarkably affordable film and sound archiving.

Going underground began decades ago. Film and television studios recognized that our uniquely cool and dry atmosphere, the distance from natural disaster and metropolitan exposure, and our location 58 floors below ground, were ideal for long term archiving of movie films. We eliminated high warehouse lease rates as well as reduced labor and utility costs. Our film vaults are void of anything that challenges asset protection at surface level, including seismic activity, fires, and intrusion.

Underground Vaults & Storage is recognized as a leader in secure storage for the motion picture and entertainment industry.  Our three mine locations in Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky offer climate controlled vaults, refrigerated storage, bonded inspection and cataloging services, same day retrieval, same day shipping, and refrigerated transportation services.

Underground Vaults & Storage is a proud member of the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA).
