Hi guys.

I've never been really able to figure out uploading pics to this site. Whenever I try, Brad still seems to be staring at me. So rather than get killed, here's a link.............

http://www.vsp.cape.com/~prfcg/cgctowers.html

This link is mainly the Towers installed into my tiny booth. Currently, this is the setup.

This next link, is older pics of the booth, but with some shots of the basement cinema as well. The basement really has not changed much.

http://users.adelphia.net/~prfcg/s8s.html

Seems like it's time for me to do another photo shoot of the basement cinema, in due time I will try again.

Tom, don't be embarrased. I think everyone is just curious as to what each other uses as a screening area. The elaborate ones are great, but I also like to see what people have in their apartments, basements, garages, etc. Seeing the collectables is a interesting too. With all that weaponry no will attempt to hiest any of Trevs films. [Big Grin] Then there is my cat Sweetums standing sentry over my screening room. [Eek!]

I like this thread so we can learn from other and also give a comment.

But another idea to the two Moderators (Kevin and Douglas):

Would be possible under this thread ("screening room") you two guys create different sub-thread (folder) under the owner of the screening romm, e.g. Kevin's room, Winbert's room etc.

By having this way, so every body can give a comment to a particular room in one (sub) thread instead of what we have now.

In other way too, someone who just register in this forum can still submit his comment to the respective rooms, not only to the last picture, like the trend we see now.

Can we?

Maybe we could create a new forum area ("Member Cinemas" or such) exclusively for posts containing pictures. While at it, could you nudge Brad into changing the 550-pixel width limitation to 640 pixels [Big Grin]

I think that is easy.

You two guys as the moderator have a right to move the post, don't you?

And you two guys too have a right to delete a post.

What yu need to do now, I think, move this sticky post to forum menu, and name it as Jan's idea. Then make new post according to the respective owner and delete all posts that does not relate to the screening room (like my two posts here).

Having this way, the other members who stick posting in 16mm only will also be encouraged to contribute. The screening room does not matter 8mm or 16mm, does it?

Kev, Doug?

Kev and Doug,

Did you see what did I mean? This thread become so silent...since other members (esp. the new one) tend not to comment on the first HTs appear, since people will only focus on the last post.

This will be diferent if each HT stands on different thread.

Just food for a thought,

Nice idea, Winbert. We'll see what we can do. I'm also thinking we should keep our sticky posts to a minimum. The eyes kind of glaze over the top.

Cool pics guys.

Douglas, the 550 pixel limit is due to formatting of the forum and how the software handles people with lower resolution monitors. We are currently considering a foolproof method of forcing the server to resize pictures, but also be able to display the pictures full sized if clicked on. Not sure how feasible this is, but we'll see how it goes.

Here are some old photo's when we first started a long long time ago.

 -



Those photos of the foundation about 12yrs ago

 -

 -

The Projection box was 40inches long, not much room . The last photo is of my son taken about 9yrs ago he still has his projector and films and still gets them out from time to time.

 -

 -

The projection box had one GS1200 and a B/H 642 16mm projector the seats which are long gone are old aircraft seats which still had the "life jacket is under your seat" label on the back also they had fold down trays which came in handy, although those photos are old it was at the time a lot of fun building it.

Graham,

When you put the Projector on that way (the most above GS), does not that make keystoning? How do you avoid that?

Thanks,

Hi Wilbert
The keystoning is only very slight, and the side masking takes care of it, good point though, and I wonder how they deal with it at some of the conventions held in Britain. Some photos show the projectors angled steeply.

Its nice to see some 9.5mm in your images Trevor. I am keen on the vintage gauge myself along with the Pathe 17.5mm within my own collection, not to metion 28mm KOK. Hope to chat more to you in the new year about this.
All good wishes
Lee & Val.

I don't really have a screening room, i use my projectors as portables (well some are heavy--up to 20lb!) (sometimes i use my basement, mostly for my non-zoom lens Mansfield 8mm Projector, but my chinon sound projector works practically everywhere because of the 15-30mm zoom lens. I bet you can guess my favorite [Wink]

Here's my Chinon sound on sound projector, and

Here's my Mansfield projector (this is my whole collection, sadly, but im a young collector)

Welcome to 8mm Forum: the smallest forum in the world! (lol)
