   The former New England developer and businessman, who now lives in Land O'Lakes, is making plans for a museum large enough to house 35,000 movie artifacts, including a collection of more than 900 movie cameras.

   Film and camera fans are invited to view the array of movie cameras that have been used by everyone from NASA engineers and Hollywood filmmakers to Mom and Po. Props come from movies like Cleopatra, The Rocketeer and Gangs of New York.

   But for now, his nonprofit is homeless.        

    He has been talking with city officials all over Tampa Bay looking for enough space to properly display the collection he's been amassing since he received his first Super 8 camera at age 15. "So far nothing acceptable has been found," he said.

   "Part of the fun of collecting these things," LaRiviere said, "is doing the research and seeing what you can learn."
