Well ! What a double whammy I have had this weekend! After flying down to Rio last night (see my earlier post), tonight I treated myself to a cinemascope night..... to compensate for my wife being glued to the TV all evening for the X-Factor final!

Tonight's list...

Trailers...

The Sound of Music
Lawrence of Arabia
Close Encounters of The Third Kind
The Spy Who Loved Me

Others...

Escape To Athena 1x 400'
Two Minute Warning 1x 400'
The Fog - Part 2 1x 800'

Mark - That may explain why I felt that the film, as opposed to being carefully edited, had been "chopped" in several places. There were some scene changes that did not seem to make sense, with the same character appearing in both of them without any real explanation.The amount of screen time on the extra 400' would have smoothed this over and made it a bit easier to follow.

So far only watched Reel 1 & Reel 2 of 7 400ft. reels.

I LOVE watching "The Abyss" on the big super 8 scope screen. The movie has so much atmosphere and I will only watch this one on film. Beautiful print too!

Great prints you have there Steve (always liked "The Abyss", it had GREAT surround sound effects!)

Also a great find in the color of "Jedi", as some prints were terribly blue.

I second everyone, nice collection Steve.

Chip youve been busy, you have some nice titles as well.

Tonight I screened "Shane" what a treat. The contrast colors and sharpness are some of the best Ive seen on S8.

Also watched a 400ft. digest (Scope)
BTW I watched these midday and a bit of light was shinning so screen shots are not as vibrant in color. But let me tell you these screens are no where near the quality of the color, contrast and sharpness as watching it directly at the screen with your own eyes).

WOW - Great Digest...

Last night?

Just a single, silent, 200 Foot railroad film: Sunday River Productions "Bridgton and Harrison". These are depression era scenes on one of Maine's narrow gauge lines.

What's the big deal? The opening scenes of the film were shot January 1st, 1937, so I was seeing backwards exactly 80 years ago.

There's this young man, maybe all of 20 years old. When the train arrives he comes out with a mailbag: serious face, round metal framed glasses and a crew cut. He's wearing one one of those warm plaid woolen coats they favor up there. (Hey! -it's January!...in Maine!)

People up in Maine often live to respectable ages. (One theory is they freeze solid about mid-December and the time until they thaw at the end of March doesn't count!). So it's possible he's pushing a hundred and still at it up there. The timing is good for him to have spent some time in Europe or the Pacific a few years later. I hope he came through it OK.

-does he have any idea he's been immortalized like this and shows up still a young man on screens all over the world?

We rented a vacation cottage up there a few summers ago. I did some exploration of one of the long abandoned yards. It was a steamy slog among poison ivy, mosquitoes and not just a few "No Trespassing" signs in an area where even grade school kids know how to handle a shotgun!

I found very little there that could be still considered "railroady". Fortunately I'd brought a projector and I watched this film that night.

-much better!

--------------------
All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

Wow! You've been busy Steve! I do highly admire that "Abyss" feature. I like it better on you're super 8 print! I had a widescreen laserdisc of this feature for years, but the aspect ratio wasn't as wide, but it sure looks GREAT in scope.

"Abyss" is one of those movies one should really see on the scope screen, to be sure! [Smile]
