..and that looks like an IBM 2260 terminal, but with a strangely shortened keyboard.

That puny keyboard on the IBM 2260 terminal was actually an option for the terminal. It's a numeric keypad for cases when only numbers needed to be entered.

Yes, an IBM 360 possibly model 67. I wonder where this was filmed. I used to work at NASA/Ames Research Center at Moffett Field in Mountain View and it looks a lot like our computer facility. That was an IBM 360/67.
