Hi guys, here we go.
As usual, I'll post pics up to the limit, then someone else can post a quick note, and I can continue. That way everything is in one thread for reference.

 -

Wildwood was on the cold side this time, but beautiful as always.
It never ceases to be like magic: this plain room becomes a haven for us for 2-3 days. If that isn't love of film, what is?

 -

Doug's big screen and Gary Sloan's terrific sound system promised an excellent time:

 -

We inaugurated the "Friday Night Feature" this time, and it was a great success. People arrived earlier, and we had an extra group dinner together with our good friend Simone in attendance:

 -

Feature time! "The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad" in Super-8. The GS-1200 Xenon showed why it is one of the "kings of projectors" here, with a tremendous, sharp image on the big screen, and excellent sound through Gary Sloan's JBL/subwoofer combo. Sinbad and company should look this good all the time:

 -

 -

Come Saturday, the room filled up with....well, everything film :-)

 -

As usual, our late friend John had his table 'in memoriam':

 -

That is it for this time; when someone comments I can continue.

The room settled down to the usual atmosphere with the sounds of projectors and soundtracks blending with talk about...what else, film!

 -

 -

If you don't know who he is by now..... [Big Grin]

 -

Old and new in harmony: an Ipad comes in handy for sharing pictures and showing one's collection:

 -

A big hello to our forum friend Paul Adsett and his wife Betty; we are glad they made it this time:

 -

As always, a good cross-section of films. Hey, when the lists in the room go from Bugs Bunny to "Triumph of the Will"...

 -

Steven Klare, our juniormost attendee, knows box art when he sees it...(I forgot to ask Jeffrey where he got that t-shirt.)

 -

Round two done...someone chime in...

I'm hoping when I retire I can make it. Can you project scope there? I have El Cid and Close Encounters I'm sure everyone would love to see and I would love to share them.

Excellent pictures Claus...nice to see everyone enjoying themselves. The Xenon GS1200 looks very impressive... nice and bright [Cool]

Steve.
Thanks for sending me the photos of " A Train For Christmas" a fellow forum film collector here in NZ has a 35mm print of it but wont part with it [Frown] [Smile]

Great stuff everyone [Cool]

Just to be clear: My name goes with more than one face in these photos!

(I'm actually much taller ...and much older than the guy in that last picture! [Wink] )

It was a nice surprise to meet Betty and Paul Adsett for the first time!

Ok, another round....it's that pesky thing "work" that keeps interfering with posting pics :-)

My travelmate Gary Crawford held court with his Pageants and Elmos. However, he also had one Eumig machine that was not well...

 -

...so our "house engineer" Mr. Klare set to work:

 -

...and meanwhile young Steven was absorbed in a film (relax Gary, it will run again.... [Big Grin] )

 -

A parade of excellent prints ran at any given time...

 -

 -

 -

Highly recommended for CineSea if the temps are cold and you are bald: the sunshade with built-in hair!

 -

I'll be back...

Note the warm clothes!

I can't be sure if this was the coolest CineSea, but it had to be at least close!

(Do you think we'll ever get to use that pool?)

The last time I was there two years ago in October it was warm and people were using the pool.

Certainly not this time!

The water was a little green and I think I saw an iceberg out by the far shore!

The "Airyflex" has become part of the tradition here. Ok, maybe it's not up there with the lighting of the Olympic flame, but hey, we try....

 -

 -

Our good friend Jeffrey was conducting an impromptu editing class:

 -

 -

Meanwhile big Jack Cleveland was lounging with yet another of his top-flight prints:

 -

 -

Joe Griesbach showcased a mint Revere 16mm sound projector:

 -

 -

That's all for this time...

The thing is you have absolutely no idea what's going to be available until you get there, so it's a complete surprise. I've left CineSea with one or two OKish reels, but more than a few times come home with really neat films.

Last Fall I was thumbing through the Blackhawk Laurel and Hardies. I saw "Unaccustomed as We Are". I said (to myself)"Yeah, another silent..." but saw an 880 code (Sound!). I looked inside, saw it was striped and felt a little light headed!

You see, I'd been looking for one of these for years and had actually given up on it! I wondered if somebody was playing a cruel joke on me, but it is the genuine article.

This time I left with Fantasia 2000, a film I've wanted since Derann days!

I can say for a fact I left a few behind I hope to see again next time: the selection was that good! I don't think I've not bought a film I liked since could buy them out of a catalog.

-bearing in mind too: I don't collect 16mm (so far...) and the bulk of the films there are 16, so it's even better for 16mm Folk.

Joe Vannicola ponders the choices for sale....

 -

...while his tube-amp-powered Filmosound helps keep the room warm [Big Grin]

 -

A good read is always nice...(!)

 -

And if you want to dance....and it's in 'scope:

 -

...however, Mr. Cleveland beat everyone with this: "Gone With the Wind", all of it, in perfect shape, from Derann. A reminder of the truly ambitious long titles that were available in S-8 back in 'the heyday.'

 -

Paul Adsett brought a lovely Pathe 9.5mm machine with him:

 -

It's definitely the format you CANNOT load into the wrong projector by mistake...:-)

 -

Just a wrap-up to go next time...back soon.

A mea culpa for not introducing Jeffrey's beautiful companion Laurie yet; here she is in the fine company of Shorty:

 -

With Saturday night came the group dinner, a.k.a. the CineSea Summit, at the Two-Mile Restaurant. Good food, good company:

 -

Then it was screening time. Doug and Gary's Xenon machines took center stage to light up the screen:

 -

A mix of films into the night, all beautifully presented:

 -

 -

"The Mummy"...Super-8, Xenon light...any questions? :-)

 -

As Sunday came, the packing began; the last deals were made, and the talk was of "next time." We gathered for a couple of farewell shots:

 -

 -

And that was CineSea 11, as documented by your roving photographer :-)
The familiar plea: if you couldn't make it this time, come back again in the fall; if you have never been there yet, mark the dates and start planning. You don't know what you are missing. CineSea isn't fancy, but it is REAL.

Real as in: people come because they really want to, because of the friendly atmosphere, the unexpectedly great film selection, the dinner(s)...think of us as a social club full of film nuts, and you won't be half wrong.

Thanks for looking and reading; see you at CineSea 12.
Claus.
