Once again, by popular demand, I showed my IB Tech 16mm THE JOLSON STORY. Technicolor projected onto the big screen is amazing. An enjoyable night.

I too ran the 1933 Merri Melodies Vitaphone cartoon:
The Shanty where Santy Claus Lives.
It's a fantastic,seven minutes with great music.
and packed with fun.

So Stay Tuned Folks!

Okay everyone, here I am back again. For the past 12 months, I've recorded every single show I ran on my big screen. Has anyone else done that?

You can use a spreadsheet on a clipboard, or even a simple wall calendar. At the start of the new year, put it all down on paper and itemize it. You'll be surprised to know what you can learn....as with this list for 2008, I did not show any super 8 cinemascope OR stereo sound. And that is kind of strange, but there it is in black and white......

SOME PEOPLE 16MM February 18
LOTTERY BRIDE SUPER 8 SOUND March 01
FANTASIA (1940) SUPER 8 SOUND June 19
LET'S MAKE LOVE 16MM SCOPE June 26
GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS (SPANISH) SUPER 8 SOUND June 30
GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS (ENGLISH) SUPER 8 SOUND July 27

And just tonight, I will kick off 2009 with the DVD of A CHORUS LINE on my big screen with the Panny AX200U !!

Here's hoping that all of us will have a healthy happy 2009 filled with great screenings!

See you in the booth!!!!!!!!

Chip, was that the letterboxed spuer 8 print? I remember Steve Osbourne having a print of that on his lists and I was curious about it. I heard that it was a decent thriller!

The year started on a high note ! On January 1,I screened one of my dreams-come-true acquisitions, the complete Cineavision print of 2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY, with the Elmo ST1200 HD. Both arrived at 6 pm of December 31, so there really is a Santa Claus !! The screening was accompanied with MILLIONAIRE DROOPY,Tom and Jerry in HAPPY GO DUCKY and GOOD WILL TO MEN, all MGM Cinemascope super 8.

Panayotis,

If I am not mistaken, you are perhaps some of few
collectors that own 2001. How is the color quality,
detail and sharpness in the print? How many reels,
and is it on Low fade stock?

At last I can post in this topic!

Last night we ran, Mighty Joe Young feature length on Super 8 and King Kong on 16mm.
Super 8 on my newly revived Yashica P810 and 16mm on a pair of Eiki SSLs.

Along with 4 cartoons(16mm Warners) that is the total of my collection so far!
We also have an older Sharp XV H37U LCD video projector that we enjoy often. I know there are better LCDs out there nowadays but at 12 years old, it still makes for an impressive presentation.
The original Star`Wars on laserdisc(the big box set!) or one of my plethora of Godzilla LDs is especially fun with my six year old son Kenneth!

Monday Night January 5 2009

The Phantom Menace

DVD Projection

We have begun what we hope will be weekly screenings of the complete Star Wars series, ending the last three with super 8 cinemascope. Following those, we continue with 2001; 2010; Star Trek Generations, and end the series with what else: Spaceballs. Assuming there are no unexpected delays or conflicts, this will take us to March 16th [Big Grin]

Michael
2001 , in sharpness, is not the best Cineavision print I have seen. this is due to the original master used to make the 8mm prints.This does not mean it is bad,it is very very good, but it simply lacks the top,pin-sharp exellence of other Cineavisions.Although I don't believe it is Low Fade,it has retained its colors, which were muted in the original anyhow,and one can watch the dark scenes easily without tiring.It is 139 minutes on 8 x 400 reels.
An excerpt was shown at the 7th BFCC,in 1982, which Dr Van Tetering attended and he said that up to that day,200 prints had been sold worldwide. So more must have been printed later but it is one of those films that owners seem to hang on to the end.

My daughter's birthday screening finally happened yesterday evening. It was originally scheduled for dec. 24 but several occurences (guests caught in traffic arriving late, the little one being in a bad mood and me being sick with the flu) led to its cancellation.
Since the program was built up and resting on its spools, and since we had friends over for the day, we all gathered in our basement cinema for a selection of commercials from the 70s, trailers to "Toy Story", "SpongeBob Squarepants", "Owl's Moving Castle", "For the Birds" animated short

I'm getting a few reels ready to list on eBay and tonight I watched WINGS TO BRITAIN, a 1957 16mm IB Tech travelogue which was produced for Pan American Airlines. Hey--looks like a fun place to visit, for sure!

Last night it was time for THE RESCUERS and DAWN OF THE DEAD. I know it's a little wierd - a cartoon and a horror movie! - but I'm selling one of my two copies of this Romero's cult (the first I had and kept for so many years) so it was a good way to say BYE BYE. And tonight? LITTLE RASCALS! I'm in love with those funny episodes!

Just watched a couple of old castle films "Old Time Movies" cowboy thrillers on regular 8 200 footers.
One was called Border Law and the other Revenge on the Range The characters in both were similar, and each played like an episode of a serial. Does anyone know what these films actually are?

Last night a 16mm print of 'A bout de souffle' with Jean Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg. Very nice!

Last week, I showed the little ones (5 and 7) a S8 print of Buster Keaton's 'One Week'. I was a bit reluctant to show the print since it hasn't a music track, but it was a big hit. Who needs a music track if the room is filled with laughter!
The print isn't terribly good for a Blackhawk print, though. I was wondering if there are better prints around.
