Tuesday night: Reels #1 and 4 from Derann's very good scope print of "Fearless Vampire Killers" (spliced together, these 600ft reels make a great mini feature, with opening and closing credits).

Thursday night, the GS1200 Xenon was fired up for Derann's a-ma-zing print of Disney's Aladdin.

Yesterday I showed "Speed" with some friends. I re-recorded it to german sound. Was a great show. The "starter" was "This is Scope" from Derann.
Today I will re-record Derann's "The Glenn Miller Story" to German Sound.

Another successful night for the Madagascar Penguins (this has to be now the most projected animated short at our house), followed by a stream of silly French Soundies/Scopitones from the 1960s (on 16mm).
Now preparing Margaux's Birthday/Xmas screening for next wednesday...

My copy of this penguin classic has poor sound. I thought about re-recording it but I am not sure where the excerpt appears in DVD terms- can you point me in the right direction?

Tony: When I retracked the super 8 version, I used the file from the Madagascar DVD bonus disc released here. I don't know about the english edition.

My Derann copy had poor sound as well and then I rerecorded it. It has better sound but the stripe on my copy is not the best. It has some dropouts but at least its not muffled anymore!

I also re-recorded the Penguins from the DVD, using my Eumig 938 stereo. I got very good results with excellent stereo separation.

After our annual trek to Longwood Gardens and then church, the late hour only permitted one short, (my favorite, of course): TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS episode from The Honeymooners, in 16mm. Tonight, it looks like the family demand will be IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE in Super 8 along with one or two Castle Christmas shorts in 16mm.

Christmas day watched the 400fter pt1 of STARWARS it would be interesting to know how many kids woke up christmas day to find a STARWARS reel under the tree during the late 70s early 80s!

Hmm ! It was a busy ten ,or so, days. Let's see now:
On Tuesday 17 we had A KING IN NEW YORK, supported by Ub Iwerks' NOVELTY SHOP, one of his last for Columbia,Disney's MINNIE'S YOO HOO, made for the early Mickey Mouse Clubs in 1930, Stan Laurel in MAN ABOUT TOWN, and several trailers.All in super 8.
On Friday 19,at a friend's home,(who is not a member),we saw Dr Seuss' THE CAT IN THE HAT,the 1971 tv special,a 1963 color documentary about the US endorsing (!) a Latin American Commonwealth,with footage of John Kennedy shortly before his assasination,plus several shorts.All in 16 mm.
On Saturday 20,at Giorgos Tsakonas' place,we saw some well preserved 16 mm footage,of a well to do family from Kolonaki,the high class district of Athens,from the mid forties to the late fifties,the last reel,of a day at the beach, in 1959 in glorious color!Plus,another documentary shot for Danish tv,but most probably never shown,of life among a middle class Athenian family.After all the identification discussions and guesses,mainstream entertainment came from Andy Clyde in HEATHER AND YON,a remake of Keaton's JAIL BAIT,the Busby Berkeley compilation BRING ON THE GIRLS and culminating with Bomba the Jungle Boy in SAFARI DRUMS ! All in 16 mm.
On Sunday 21,chez moi,we saw Yanis Tzortzis' print of Murnau's SUNRISE,supported by Charley Chase in CRAZY LIKE A FOX and Daffy and Porky in MY LITTLE DUCKAROO,all in super 8.
My Christmas show,starting in a short while,is scheduled as follows: The 1925 "mockumentary" SANTA CLAUS,Charley Chase vs Noah Young in THERE AIN'T NO SANTA CLAUS,both on std 8,THE SHANTY WHERE SANTY CLAUS LIVES,early WB cartoon and of course, SCROOGE, with Alastair Sim, both on super 8.

Hi everyone!

My Christmas night super-8 program was-

1. Small One (600 foot, Derann print)

2. Pluto's Christmas Tree (200 foot)

3. Madigascar Pinguins (400 foot)

4. about 400 feet of home movies, with Christmas themes. (note- as some of the home movies were silent, I played a cd (music from Charlie Brown's Christmas) in the backround- the effect was perfect.

The show was a complete success!

James.

Last night we had a very unseasonal film show. We started with two 400ft digests,"Invaders from Mars" and "The Boogie Man Will Get You", followed by the 4X400ft Niles print of "The House of Fear".

Kudos to James Savage - playing music with silent movies - now there's some pride and showmanship for ya!

Screening Date December 26th:

DVD LCD video projection on my big screen

Rocky Horror Picture Show
I liked this movie as a musical, and the costumes and set design was great. But I can't figure out why this is such a cult classic. I've heard attending the midnight public showings can be quite fun or quite the experience. I've also heard that theater janitors work overtime after the show!

For those who know, may I ask what makes this movie such a hit? Could it be that the title has the name of Rocky in it but Stallone is not?

after the intermission

David & Lisa (1961) in 16mm starring Kier Duellea who later went on to star in Kubrick's masterpiece 2001 A Space Oddesy

A long night but definitely worth every minute [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Last night was a 16mm night and we watched "Night of the Big Heat" and "Dr. Cyclops". Both prints were black and white, but it would be hard to find colour prints of these that hadn't faded. We followed this with "Journey into Darkness", a film made up of two episodes of the classic Hammer TV series "Journey into the Unknown".This was a beautiful print with great colour, however the third reel was out of synch which was a bit of a disappointment.

I've been too busy to have film showings this season , BUT ..on Christmas eve, from Steve Osborne of Reel Image..., there was a package in the mailbox...it was Classic Home Cinema's brand new trailer of the Hammer Dracula....produced by BFI....for the re-release restored uncut release of that classic film. This trailer is very long..and very cleverly done....with very very good color and sound. I have a 16mm IB tech print of the feature and this trailer made me want to get it out and run it. It's excellent. The preview came from a new 35mm master..and it looks it. that was my one Christmas showing...just for myself.
