First off I wonder if I am in the minority or majority here, whereby most of my recent film viewing is done in a small fashion. I have some of my small projectors set up next to my bed (A chinon 1200 for super 8, a eumig 712D for reg 8, and specto 500 for 9.5. I live in a condo, and have a screen, in the living room, but it is a somewhat ordeal to set up so unless my wife feels like a movie, I am in the bedroom throwing it against the open white door. It's not that bad really.

 -

Oh but last night I watched the pathescope 3 reeler Robert Macaire on 9.5mm. Here is a snap of what it looks like against the door. It is about an 8 foot throw and I get roughly a 3 foot image with a 1.5 lens.

Last night we had our friends and their young 2 year old round. She LOVED The Snowman on 16mm while mum and dad enjoyed Paddington Goes To School. Incidentally, this is a half-hour Paddington episode but I clearly remember Paddington being in 5 minute slots when shown on TV.

Thursday Night February 12

Attempt to screen EMMA with Gwenneth Paltrow. Experienced sound shifting left to right. Narrowed it down to dirty pots on main amps. Fixed after shut down. A-OK on second trial. Upon second attempt to play this disc, chapter 8 appears to have a glitch - English subtitles appear while hearing English sound. Chapter 9 begins and they dissapear. Attempt to play Emma in other players reveal disc defect.

Canceling Emma, switched to ICE AGE THE MELTDOWN. Now writing this report, this selection was to say the least, the right one after Emma. Played just fine through the same player as Emma.

Note to Miss. Paltrow: You are indeed a great actress and very beautiful as well. However your disc encoding leaves a little to be desired......

Just showed "The Kid Brother" for the Kids (9 and 11 years), it's an eight reeler from 1927 with Harold Lloyd .
The Kids enjoyed the film very much, especially the cleverness of escape-gags, where Harold outsmarts his bigger brothers who try to catch and beat him.
Great, sharp Blackhawk print with a clever music track!

Sunday, February 15th.
Tonight it was time for:

Derann BAMBI (amazing!): THANKS KEITH [Wink]
Dario Argento's TENEBRE (terryfing) [Eek!]

About TENEBRE look here! This scene was censored for the VHS edition (and on tv as well) because the miserable lady is VERONICA LARIO (Berlusconi's wife) BUT on the super 8 edition it is possible to watch it!

BE AWARE: very violent sequence

wow I'm jealous regarding your ability to project nitrate in your home. Do you really have a home booth set up for nitrate? or are there no regulatory codes for such in france? I have thousands of feet of nitrate, but currently have no means for any 35mm at home (One day I'll finally fix up my Devry portable)but even then doubt I can handle the nitrate.

Until then its still the small format..Tonight was a really short one with 3 reg 8mm cutdowns of silent shorts
2 Eddie Boland's Paint and Powder & Prince Pistachio, and a Knockout Kelly called One at a Time.

Here's the cutey princess from Prince Pistachio

Jean-Marc, you are brave running nitrate at home on what I presume are projectors without spool boxes and fire traps? What equipment did you run it on?

I have nitrate here but won't run it. I have some beautiful I.B.T. of the Olympics in 48 or 52 that I would love to run.

Last Friday

Afternoon

1/800ft reel... Trailer to Fantasia, Soundtrack Demo, Pactoral Symphony, Dance of the Hours, and The Sorcerers Apprentice. one of my favourite reels.
Followed by "Pelle the Conqueror" on DVD projected on a Sanyo Z1 projector.

That Evening
While my better half was watching CSI [Roll Eyes] on the dreaded TV I watched Star Wars 1977 again on DVD using the Sanyo Z1 in our home cinema.

Saturday night
We both watched The NeverEnding Story 2 "not a bad movie" on the VP.

Graham.

PS I have an Ernemann2 35mm projector with fire proof spool boxes built for nitrate use, out here if you do have a fire as a result of nitrate film or even just storing it, your insurance becomes "void" If nitrate ignites you cant stop it I do know someone that will still project it and has had no problems, for transportation its classified as an "Explosive" I dont store or run nitrate, stick to DVD its safer [Wink]

I was informed by a friend collector, of
another collector here in the US, that
also runs nitrate. However he is positioned
with one hand on the fire extinguisher
during the program.

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great
hobby that we love!
